I am confused as to where do i input the target attribute if there is already a href tag there. Also, with >cat photos as seen in code, do i remove this and input the value of _blank? they’re both values correct ?

It worked haha, thank you. are you able to see code on your end?

yes that great you learned another thing

your anchor tag has no target attribute with value of _blank

<a href="...." target="_blank">text in blue</a>

Ahhh, i see… so for example…

<a href="something.com">"xxx" target="_Blank">"xxx"</a>

will this work? what is the “text in blue” considered, the value? i can’t add mutliple of those after each alt?

actually a tag can have multiple attributes each separated by a space within < and >

<a href="something.com">"xxx"< and > target="_Blank">"xxx"</a>

Like this?

you have to use > only after you have assigned all the attributes, you can see you have assigned target outside of < and > of anchor which is a syntax error

is it possible you can label tag, attribute and value to get a better understand of them.

For example… will href be consider a alt?
