Target a Link to Open in a New Browser Window

The Property inspector, when a hyperlink is selected, has a pop-up box called Target. Frames use the target attribute to load a page into a defined frame. Frames are covered in Hour 11, "Understanding and Building Frames and Framesets." There are four reserved target names that you can use with any link.

Three of the four reserved target names are used mainly with frames. But the _blank reserved target name, as shown in Figure 5.9, is useful when you want to leave the current browser window open and let the link create a new browser window with the linked Web page in it. Select _blank from the Target pop-up menu when one of the hotspots is selected. Preview your Web page in the browser and select that link. Now both the original window containing your image map is open plus a new window with the linked file in it.
