  HTML Frames Targetting Links

You've made your split screen, the big main window, and then the smaller navigation window. One problem, when you click on a link in the small window, the small window changes! That's quite a problem here's how you solve it, targetting your links.

Here is an example

<a href="start.htm" target="Large">

Remember back in the <frame> tag, the name attribute? Well, that's what you put in the quotes in the new target attribute.

There are also a few more values that can be put in that target attribute

  • _top - if you have a frames page and link to another page, this gets rid of your frames

  • _blank - this opens a new browser window for the linked to page

Back to the HTML menu.
