hi all - i'm new to this site - and i just got involved with PHP/dreamweaver. i've been browsing this site and i must say it's very helpful :) love it!
anyway, quick question -

i am trying to have a link open up a page within a target area called "_self" however i am having problems having the link of the new page contained inside this area - it just wants to open up on the whole page. here is a likeness to my code, i've read several other posts similar but haven't exactly gotten this to work...

<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" target="_self">yahoo</a>

this line works with my other links that are to *.php pages... such as...

<A href="index.php?id_menu=os" target="_self">OS</A>

any suggestions? comments? would be greatly appreciated.

What's your DOCTYPE? If you're using XHTML, then it won't work, becuase that attribute isn't specified as part of the XHTML spec.
Disclaimer: No matter how harsh I may be, I'm always IMO only.
