The <base> tag specifies a default address or a default target for all  
links on a page.

The <base> tag goes inside the head element.

The <base> tag is supported in all major browsers.
Differences Between HTML and XHTML
In HTML the <base> tag has no end tag

In XHTML the <base> tag must be properly closed.

<base href="" />
<base target="_blank" />

<img src="stickman.gif" />
<a href="">W3Schools</a>
