[TYPO3] problem with links form RTE HTMLarea

Thanks Michael for your suggestion. Not sure I understand how it 
works... I am guessing that your TS Config would limit the functionality 
of the RTE. But it would not resolve the links already created. Did not 
give me the desired outcome

Here is the links that RTE has generated by default:

<a href="programs/products-services/financial-diagnostic.html" 
title="Opens internal link in current window" target="page" 

Which seems is causing the linked page to open in a new window. I have 
fixed this problem going back and manually setting the target field to 
_self. I would rather not have to do this... I guess another solution 
would be to make the default name of every page be "page" so that it is 
unnecessary to go back and force each link to target _self. Any 
suggestions would be great.
