 Many apologies if this is a duplicate. I have searched but did not find it
 yet posted.

 I noticed that target="_blank" is being stripped from my "a href" tags my
 profile "Biographical Info" field even though the "a href" with the URL
 and closing tag still remain. It happens every time I save my profile.

 This was independently verified.

 It is a regular wordpress install running 2.9.1 (not wordpressmu, etc.).
