The HTML code looks like this:
<a target="_blank" href= "https://ServerName/t/SiteName/views/WorkbookName/ViewName?:embed=y&:display_count=no">Link text</a>
Any ideas? Unfortunately upgrading to a new version of IE 8 or using a different browser is not possible yet due to corporate policy.
I've seen this issue before in Internet Explorer 8 and while upgrading is the best course of action, often the issue will go away if you reset the browser settings: Tools->Internet Options->Advanced->Reset
