Re: Hyperlink to open document
Unfortunately you cannot control this using HTML. Which means the browsers
of your users will open the link according to the settings of their
browsers. Pretty often this means it will open inside the browser window as
you have experienced.
The only thing you can do if you don't want the link to open directly in the
window is to either convert it into a zip file (which will force the user to
download it first) or you could open it in a new browser window (< a
href="mydoc.doc" target="_blank">Download the Doc</a>), which would at least
keep your website open to the user.
