Does anybody know what any of these mean?

_blank, _self, _parent, _top????

Any response would be gladly appreciated.

these are known as the "target" for a link

_blank opens a new windows

_self opens within the same window

_parent is used with a frame, it will open within the inner frame

_top is also used with a frame, it will open using the entire window, not within the frame.

Most people will only use _self and _blank. Frames are not used very often anymore
