Here's a handy one:

< a href=" http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/577291/posts" target="_blank" > Tornado in Birmingham. < /a >

This will give you a hyper link that opens in a new window. Just close the brackets on the example. The end result:

Tornado in Birmingham.

That's a problem with old threads that have old links in them. Old links don't just fade away, they die (or change URLs.)
