How to answer the salary history question?

A possible employer has asked for my salary history. Hooray, they're interested! But I want to make *more* if I take the new job.
- The new job would involve more responsibility.
- People with similar jobs at the organization I might move to make about $95K. I make about $80K now.
- I took a pay cut when I moved to my current job about 8 years ago because it was an organization I care about, so even my current salary undervalues my worth. How do I answer the prospective employer's question in a way that will keep them open to the salary range I'm hoping for?
