Use HTML Target Attribute to Specify Where to Open Document

When a user clicks on a link, they are taken to the document pointed to by the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) in the href attribute in the link. By default the contents of the current browser window is replaced by that document. however, you can open the page in a different window as specified by the target attribute in the link.

_blank

In the link shown below, the target attribute is set to "_blank", which causes the linked document to open in a new window. This means two browser windows will be open.

<a href="http://bucarotechelp.com" target="_blank">Bucaro TecHelp</a>

The target attribute was primarily designed to work with frames. Frames are a method that could be used for layout. Frames consist of a document containing the frameset code. A frameset can contain frames and nested framesets.

The code shown below defines a frameset which contains a frame and a nested frameset, the nested frameset contains two frames. Note that each frame has a src attribute which defines the webpage to be loaded into each frame.

<frameset rows="50,*">
    <frame src="frame1.htm" />
    <frameset cols="50%,50%">
        <frame src="frame2.htm" />
        <frame src="frame3.htm"  />
   </frameset>
</frameset>

frameset
frame 2 and frame 3
