Frames: Target Practice
Target is used to indicate where the hyperlink will be displayed in reference to the current window or frame. This could be the same window, a new window, or one of the frames on a multi-frame display. Here are two examples:
<a href="something.html" target="content"> – displays hyperlink in frame named "content"
_parent (updates parent frame if this is a child, otherwise updates itself)
_self (updates frame containing the hyperlink)
_blank (displays in new, unnamed window)
xxx (displays in the frame named "xxx")
If there is no "target" identified in the tag, then the hyperlink displays in the current window.
