A pretty quick and easy way of doing this would be to change this line in
htsearch/Display.cc's Display::hilight() method (line 1215 in unpatched
3.1.5 code):

            result << "<a href=\"" << urlanchor << "\">";

to something like:

            result << "<a href=\"" << urlanchor << "\" "
                   << config["urlanchor_parameters"] << ">";

Then, you could set this in your htsearch config file:

urlanchor_parameters: target="body"

I can think of other, more powerful and flexible ways of doing this but
they'd involve much more complicated changes to the code. This one should
do the job for you.
