The target attribute is supported in all major browsers.


Definition and Usage

The target attribute specifies a name or a keyword that indicates where to display the response that is received after submitting the form.

The target attribute defines a name of, or keyword for, a browsing context (e.g. tab, window, or inline frame).


Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5

The target attribute is supported in HTML5.

The target attribute was deprecated in HTML 4.01.

Note: Frames and framesets are not supported in HTML5, so the _parent, _top and framename values are now mostly used with iframes.
