open all links with <base target="_blank"> bar a few

Hi, I know that <base target="_blank"> will open all links in a new window.
Anyone can suggest how to use it but selectively not open all the links.
I have 10 links out of 100 that I dont want to open in a new window.
Thanks in advance

Heya, Richard. Welcome to TSDN!

I'm going to go ahead and move this thread to the HTML forum, where one of our resident Experts will be more likely to see it.

Well if you have specific ones you don't want to open in a new window, just remove the target="_blank" from the code

Thanks for the reply, but I think I didnt say it well. I have many links and so to avoid excessive code was putting <base target="_blank"> in the head to apply to all links. Thats when the problem of it not being applied to the few links I didnt want to open in new windows came up.
Any suggestion, its all to avoid putting target="_blank" in each link.

Heya, Richard.

Are these links hand-coded, or are they being generated by a script?

Try setting a different target for the 10 links that you don't want to open in a new window (though I'm not sure what that target should be).
