HTML target= is deprecated

Posted by robkraft on April 4, 2010

I learned this weekend that the handy target= attribute for links (<a>) in html is deprecated.  It is so prevalent for opening new windows that I find it hard to imagine that they will remove it from HTML5.  Anyway, I guess we should use javascript window.open instead. https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/window.open
