    Is there an html target setting to open link in new IE7 tab?

    I was wondering if there was a way to program html code so that a link opens in a new tab, not a new window, when your html code is viewed in an IE7 browser. I've tried target="_blank" but that just opens a new browser window. I know I can change my personal viewer settings for IE7, but I thought it would be nice if there were some way of coding this. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Go into Internet Options. Under the General tab, click Settings under the Tabs section. There are a couple of options there you might want to use. Of course, there is the "enable tabbed browsing" checkbox up at the top. Within that section, you might want to check "open new tabs next to the current tab." To answer your original question though, look at the "Open links from other programs in:" section" at the bottom. Click the radio button that says "A new tab in the current window." You're all set!

    In reading what you originally wrote, I realize that my answer is not quite what you were asking for. There is no HTML attribute which will do what you're asking. Both IE7 and FF have the same issue with tabbed browsing. This can only be remedied by the user setting certain options on their browser.

    Oh well. Thank you very much for your response, though!

    target="_top" works for me.

    I am not sure what rules IE follows, but found a few glitches in the way IE9 works for my tabbed browsing. (Firefox and Opera open everything in tabs, as expected.)

    target="_blank" opens in new window
    target="photos" opens in new window

    Almost any other target opens where I expect, e.g.
    target="notices" opens in tab
