How to open link in new tab on html?

I'm working on an HTML project, and I can't find out how to open the link I want to open in a new tab without javascript.

I already know that

<a href="http://www.WEBSITE_NAME.com"></a>
opens the link in same tab. Any ideas how to make it open in a new one?

Answer

Set the 'target' attribute of the link to _blank:

<a href="#" target="_blank">Link</a>

Edit: for other examples, see here: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_target.asp

(Note: I previously suggested blank instead of _blank because, if used, it'll open a new tab and then use the same tab if the link is clicked again. However, this is only because, as GolezTrol pointed out, it refers to the name a of a frame/window, which would be set and used when the link is pressed again to open it in the same tab).
