Frame Breaker

You may have noticed some sites having a "frame breaker" message link. This is usually a phrase saying "If you are stuck in someone else's frames ..." or "Break out of frames here". Some framed sites DO NOT set their targets as _top when they are linking to outside sites. This can be quite annoying. So, this code will eliminate the frames and load your site page again as the dominant page.

<a href="Your_URL_here" target="_top">
Frame Breaker Link
</a>



BASE TARGET

Without any TARGET specification, a link automatically opens in the same window (frame) as the link. Using the TARGET property, I've shown how to open a link in a specified window or area. BASE TARGET establishes a BASE or GENERAL TARGET property. If your framed site is generally a navigation and main area type layout, this will save some typing.

The BASE TARGET is placed in the HEAD area of the page containing the links.

From this :
<html>
<head>
<title> Page 1 example </title>
</head>
<body>
This is page 1
<BR>
Link to page 3 <a href="page3.html" target="MainWindow"> CLICK HERE </a>
<BR>
Link to page 4 <a href="page4.html" target="MainWindow"> CLICK HERE </a>
<BR>
<a href="http://www.altavista.com/" target="_top"> Visit Altavista </a>
</body>
</html>

To this :
<html>
<head>
<title> Page 1 example </title>
<base target="MainWindow">
</head>
<body>
This is page 1
<BR>
Link to page 3 <a href="page3.html"> CLICK HERE </a>
<BR>
Link to page 4 <a href="page4.html"> CLICK HERE </a>
<BR>
<a href="http://www.infoseek.com/" target="_top"> Visit InfoSeek </a>
</body>
</html>

Normal links will now default to opening in a frame or window called "MainWindow". Any link with an actual TARGET specified in it will over-ride the BASE TARGET.

The main advantage to using BASE TARGET is on a page that contains many links to the same area.
