Really Dumb Hyperlink Question

So I'm trying to make a link at the top of a page that goes to a spot further down the page.

This is pretty simple HTML and what I'm doing "should" work. BUT, instead of opening further down, the link opens in a new tab.

Tried in IE, Chrome, and Firefox...so it's not a browser setting. For what it's worth, I'm using BP daily.

Here's how I'm doing it..

a href="#front"
then further down the page....
a name="front"

How can I get it NOT to open in a new tab?

Thanks!

EDIT: ARRGH!!!

Can't get the code to show right...
