I'm getting some stuff from a database and one of the fields is a website address. I want it to open a blank (target="_blank") when the user clicks on it. Problem is that I have a problem putting the target=_blank thingy. here is the stuff from the db..
<td><b>Website Address:</b><a href="<%=website%>"> <%=website%></a>
So where do I put the target="_blank here>
Thanks for your help in advance.

target is an attribute of the <a > tag. So it goes right beside the href attribute.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
