"Link to URL" - Question from a "Dummy"

I apologize in advance - I know literally just about nothing about web coding.

Could someone explain the difference, or functional differences between the various "Destination" choices .i.e "_self", "_parent", etc. etc.? ... in what I'd call "layman's terms" for the "web illiterate".

 

Sorry ... I'm learning ... slowly  ... and will probably have more "stupid questions" as I do so.

Basically they mean:


_Blank = New Web Page/ or Tab.

_Self = Same Web Page that you are on.

_Parent = the Main Frame of a devided window.

_Top = Most upper Frame of a devided window.


Really all you will use is _blank (when you want the link to open in a new window/tab) and _self when you want the link to take over the web page your on.


Regards, Smooth
