It's deceptively close but not quite backwards compatible. _tab will cause
the link to open in the frame called "_tab" and if it doesn't exist it
creates it, as a new window. So the first link works perfectly and opens a
new window but the second link you click will replace the first one since
there is now a frame called "_tab".
