"_top" loads the linked document in the topmost frame... that is, the new page fills the entire window.

"_self" puts the new document in the same window and frame as the current document. "_self" works the same as if you had not used TARGET at all.

"_parent" is used in the situation where a frameset file is nested inside another frameset file. A link in one of the inner frameset documents which uses "_parent" will load the new document where the inner frameset file had been.

"_blank" opens the new document in a new window.

I was going to post the website where I got this information however I just read the rules and am not allowed. Go to google and seach "_top". You'll be fine :) google is our best friend at times =)
