Any ideas or do I need to move this link to another module?
It's a little tricky to get the right syntax, but on my system I can include a target setting to open in a new window by including quote marks on the interior part of the link, as if the whole thing would be automatically wrapped in quote marks on the outside, i.e.
to open a link to Gmail in a new window.
Does that help?
Wow. That works! Not sure why or how, but it's great. Thanks.
It works because the URL that you save really does get wrapped in an <a href="......."> tag to make the link, along with a lot of other stuff appended to it. There's actually a target="_self" tag that's automatically included, too--it's dumb that Blackboard doesn't give us an option to open in a new window since they're already specifying that target setting---but it seems to hit our target="_blank" tag first and use it instead. :-)
