HTML5 and target=”_blank”

I posted a jQuery solution to the XHTML Strict Target=”_blank” problem a while back. Well I finally had some free time to start delving deep into HTML5. Low and behold the W3C has removed the deprecated status from the “_blank” value for the target attribute. What does that mean?

That means that target=”_blank” is 100% valid in HTML5!

  1. I didn’t mention any of the others since this post was supposed to be an update of my previous post but you are completely correct. Another thing to note: this post is only valid if you’re moving from XHTML to HTML5 since HTML4 never deprecated the target attribute.
