    I have created a website for the Boy Scout Troop that my son is in and one of the pages contains helpful links to other scouting sites. Is there a way to set up the links on the page so when they are clicked they open in a new browser window? I am using Microsoft Publisher 2000 to create and edit the website.

    Thanks

    In the < a > tag (i.e. anchor tag) add these words

    target=_blank

    For example, < a href = "http://forums.techguy.org" target=_blank > Techguy </ a >

    whatever link you wanted to appear

    if you wanted to have a link going to www.myfavoriteboyscoutsite.com and have it display Boy Scouts instead of the url, then you would put <a href="http://www.myfavoriteboyscoutsite.com" target=_blank>Boy Scouts</a>

    get it??

    If you weant that link to display an image, instead of text, then use an img src tag where the Boy Scout text is.

    <a href="http://www.myfavoriteboyscoutsite.com" target=_blank><img src="http://path.image.com/name.jpg"></a>

    :D Thanks RandyG for pointing it out. I thought it wouldn't appear here at all if I keep it exact. So had to insert some extra spaces :)

    and that's the only reason i pointed it out. the only real good benefit of having html turned off here is that you don't need to use the php code to keep it from being displayed.

    Glad to have edumacated ya!!;):D
