Html problem with target="_blank" on iPad, does not open a new window on the iPad.

Html problem with target="_blank" on iPad, does not open a new window on the iPad.
the same code works on the mac and does open a new window.

This code works on a Mac and it does create a new window and i can return to the previous page.

 <a target="_blank" href="http://www.lazyslumber.com/images/pdf/07_Apply%20DL.pdf"><img src='img/Portfolio/ProductGuide.png' alt="portfolio image"><H6>Download PDF File [2,124 kb]</h6></a>  

On the iPad it brings up and displays the pdf, but not in a new window.... target="_blank" does not work on the iPad or SmartPhones.
when I click the browser close window or back button I have no way to return to the device, it just move to a previous url in history.
