I have links on my website now where people can buy my music and fiction via Paypal. It's working great, I would just like to set things up so that when they clicked on the Buy Now button, it opened in a new page, rather than changed the current one.

Can you tell me how to alter the text of the standard link <a href="http://www.paypal.com/"> so that it opens in a new browser page?


Thank you in advance for any replies!

<a href="http://www.paypal.com/" target="_blank"> should do it.

Yes the above will do it, but usability experts frown upon such things as it confuses the user by 'breaking the back button' i.e. when the new page opens in a new browser window the back button (of the new window) will not take the user back to the page they came from!
