    Okay, so, I own a bunch of websites and I want to fix a few things there...

    How to make a URL link to open in a new page? At present time, once you click a link on any one of my sites, it opens on the same window. My cousin and I had a meeting last month, and she suggested I make it open in a new window. What is the best method to do this? I see a bunch of HTML tactics to do this, but not really sure which one does exactly what I want.

    This is the current HTML code for links.

    The CSS question is: How do I annotate that I want to move the text position to a few pixels..?

    This is what I have now...

    You see, it's too close to the edge. What can I do to move this a bit?

    The target is what you're looking for.

    For the text, add some left padding.

    Wrap html in css when you can instead of putting the padding in the html code.

    target="_blank" were brought back in html5, but if you use html4 (strict), it isn't a part of the standard.
