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.
|_blank||The response is displayed in a new window or tab|
|_self||The response is displayed in the same frame (this is default)|
|_parent||The response is displayed in the parent frame|
|_top||The response is displayed in the full body of the window|
|framename||The response is displayed in a named iframe|
