Targeting a Link to Open in a New Browser Window

When a hyperlink is selected, the Property inspector has a drop-down box called Target. Frames use the target attribute to load a page into a defined frame. Frames are covered in Hour 14, “Using Frames to Display Multiple Web Pages.”

There are four reserved target names you can use with any link. Three of the four reserved target names—_parent, _self, and _top—are used mainly with frames. But the _blank reserved target name, as shown in Figure 9.6, is useful when you want to leave the current browser window open and have the link open a new browser window with the linked web page in it. To use it, select Blank from the Target drop-down menu when one of the hotspots is selected. Preview your web page in the browser and select that link. Now the original window, containing your image map, is open, and so is a new window, with the linked file in it.
