Bug Description

Links in the comments sections of books served by calibre-server, e.g., at

http://mysite.com/calibre#book_id=1423&library_id=MyLibrary&panel=book_details

should have a target="_blank" tag so that they load in a new window/tab instead of within the comments frame.

I'm still getting this issue even with your patch.

Also, <a href> tags in the comments' HTML that already contain target="_blank" don't work at all (they don't even load within the iframe).

You need to refresh in your browser, and/or clear the appcache internal
cache in your browser.

I can confirm this works now in v3.14.0 (although I didn't refresh my browser, and/or clear the appcache internal cache…).
