I have a links page using the new html text links (in Flash 5).

But it opens the links in the existing browser.

How can I make it open in a new window?

<a href="file.html" target="_blank">Some Link</a>

still confused because ... where do I type the html code in? in an editor like dreamweaver?


I know how to set a target to a new browser window using the old button method for links (ie make a button for each link or reuse a invis one) and then make the button action


on (release) {
getURL ("http://www.blah.blah", "_blank");
}


But I can't seem to find where to specify a new window using the new URL linking in Flash 5's new Character Panel

Checkout the scrolling text tutorial. You have to load a text file with the HTML defined in it. Then you can add that link in the HTML source...
