Coding idiot here...I need the help of you fine individuals. This is probably stupidly simple for you.

I have a page on my FrontPage website that has an inline frame. Inside the frame is a link to a PDF version of the article inside the inline frame. When you click on the link, it naturally opens the PDF inside the inline frame.

I don't like how it looks and would rather the link open up the PDF in a new window outside the frame. But I don't want any other links on the page to be affected (i.e., open new windows) - just that one hyperlink.

Is there simple coding I can add just to the hyperlink so it opens a new window with the PDF.

Here's a link to the page in question:

It's not a link on the left...it's a link inside the inline frame.

Scroll down to the bottom of the inline frame, and you will see a little printer image. That's where the link is. Click on it and you will see what I don't like. I want the link to open the PDF in a separate browser window (not a popup).

Any help is most appreciated!

<a href="CreatingTimeTheVirtualWay.pdf">

Change that to:

<a href="CreatingTimeTheVirtualWay.pdf" target="_blank">

That should open it into a new window.
