When I use the "Press It" Bookmarklet it opens the new post in my current tab. Can I change it to open in a new tab instead? I'd like to refer to the original page that I'm posting about.

Open "Press It" Bookmarklet in a New Tab?
After you make your post, it should be returning you to the original site anyway.
I don't even think there's a HTML tag for a new tab.
Thanks for your reply and help drmike. I'm still getting used to WordPress. When I used posting bookmarklets at Blogger and Typepad they would open a new tab and leave the original site open.
I guess I can always work around it by using a duplicate tab before "Press It".
Here's what the TypePad QuickPost bookmarklet looks like:
(Sorry it doesn't wrap!) I think it does ask for a new window, but I have my options set to force opening in new tabs instead.
Yeah, that's new window. I found examples of that many places.
Duh me - I figured it out. I was up 48 hours before getting any sleep yesterday and just too tired to think. After I posted the TypePad example, I thought hmmm ... well, this works like a charm. All I had to do was add the d=document;w=window;t=''; before if.
Darn! I could swear when I last posted that the bookmarklet opened in a new window (well tab, mine are forced) when I pressed it :( That was the only time. Now I have to open a duplicate tab before pushing "Press It" if I want to see the original site at the same time I'm posting.
Can I get some help again please?
