If the separate tab should be opened that's different think. People seems
not to agree what's right. Some say you can use target="_blank" some other
that it is a bad practice almost always and you should leave it completely
on the user (even non-advanced user can usually go back).


PS: The i.spec.unmix manual is not online (generated)?
