Challenge: Step 13

Link to the challenge:

_blank is not an attribute, its a value of the attribute “target”.
You add the target attribute with the value _blank to the anchor ( a ) element’s opening tag. This makes the link(the anchor link) open in a new tab.

Note: Describing your issue in the **Tell us what’s happening:**section helps to understand your problem better.

can you show me an example please, as you might expect am new to the whole thing, its difficult to wrap my head around it with your explanation.

What he means is things like < body> and < p> are elements. Within elements you can specify attributes which are assigned values. An example of this would be:

<p>I am a standard paragraph</p>

<p class="paragraph">I am a paragraph with the class attribute and the value of "paragraph"</p>

Hopefully this example provides you with enough information to complete this challenge. Let us know if you need further assistance.
