Yup ... looks like this post is doing more to spread and perpetuate a piece of confusion than to clear it up ... "_blank" is just a reserved word with a special meaning, so comparing it to "blank" is like comparing apples and oranges ;)

And yes, I just did a Google search and I see tons of blogs posts going on about exactly this same subject, so it's not like anything new and earth shattering has been uncovered here ... in other words, this is basic knowledge :)
