As Gavin says, you must use a source XML file to enable that.
If you are using html as the source, then perhaps you can use the
old <a target="_blank" href="... stuff.

Yes it does. These use the howto-v20 which uses the document-v20.

Yes. G.Verhaag that works for us. However we use the current
trunk (forrest-0.8-dev) and xdoc sources for our site.

This was recently fixed in the forrest-0.7 branch:

You would need to use the SVN branch to get that change.
svn co forrest-07

Alternatively follow the link to Issue FOR-824 from the
"Changes" page, the follow the link to "Subversion Commits"
and apply the second set of changes (r398541) to your
release of Forrest and rebuild it.
