I can't figure out how to do this from reading the FrameMaker online help.

It's been mandated that we want to create a link to our User Guide PDF
file from the WebWorks Help output we're creating. To make things
simple, the installer will put the PDF file in the same root folder as
the WebWorks Help system.

What I want to do is create a link on the "front" page (and only
there) that will convert to a standard HTML link to open a PDF file
(and do it in a separate window), and create the link within
FrameMaker so it will not appear in the PDF output itself.

The Hypertext Link marker doesn't appear to support the target=
attribute, but then, I don't know what HTML it will create. The only
example given is that if a standard URL.
