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’ }) %>

What does the generated HTML look like?

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.
