auto_link open new window

This code is not opening the link in a new window. Any ideas?

<%= auto_link(@post, :href_options => { :target => '_blank' }) %>

normal without the target= “_blank”

I have seen suggestions that there is an error in the docs for
auto_link and that it should be :html => {} rather than :href_options
=> {}. I cannot vouch for the correctness or otherwise of this
however.

Ya that worked. Thanks, I should have tried that. DOH!
