Open hyperlinks in new window/tab/pop-up ?

Now that my hyperlinks are working again....

I have a section with "directions" to lots of locations, each location has a google map link and a link to a pdf , when the user clicks on a link for a PDF or google map etc, it comes up fine but when you hit the "back" button to return to the site you have to go back in the front door again and nav back to where you were.  How do I setup these links to open in a new browser window or a pop-up so the user doesn't lose their place on the site?  This is a actionscript 2 / flash9 project.

 

Thanks

 

Joel

    The geURL function can take two arguments, the url and the target window.  If you set the target window to "_blank" it should open the linked page in a new browser wndow.
