    Would it be possible to automatically add target="_blank" to the HTML version of the links? If you want that tag, it becomes impossible to use Markdown.

    Hi James,

    Unfortunately not. Doing so departs from the Markdown standard. In addition many authors don't want to add target="_blank" (- and many readers would prefer to be left the option of ctrl+click :)).

    But anyway, while its possible to edit the plug-in and make that change, it then ceases to become markdown :) - so its not something I'm going to implement.

    You can always mix and match HTML with markdown - explicitly writing the anchor tag with target attribute when you need it.
