Hello @danlan959. What is your question?

html tags attributes goes (most the times) in pairs in this format

as example compare ur Image tag, which have 2 attributes, src and alt

<img src="https://etc"
     alt="A cute cat"

Hello @danlan959 In this task you need to add an attribute to the tag. Exactly in your situation href="" ==> this is an atribute within a tag. So inside of a tag you need to add an attribute. Between the quotes you need to put value. Your value is _blank. You may use single quote or double quotes. I hope I was able to give you a hint)


I am also having issues with this step - the instructions say: Add a target attribute with the value _blank to the anchor (a) element’s opening tag, so that the link opens in a new tab.

You are meant to add the attribute to:
<p>Click here to view more <a href= ""> cat photos </a>. </p>

However, it is very unclear where the attribute should go in the string and every time I put the attribute _blank into the beginning of the anchor, whether it’s within the quotation marks of the link or before them, it is incorrect. I’m stumped where _blank is supposed to go or if I’m simply missing something alongside it?

You need to place the attribute inside of the opening <a.....> tag


a better google search gave me the answer - it should look like:

<a target="_blank"“link url” and the rest of your anchor


Yup. You add it just like you’ve added attributes to opening tags in previous steps.

Add a target attribute with the value _blank to the anchor (a ) element’s opening tag, so that the link opens in a new tab.

<a target=“_blank” href="https…

This step was bit confusing, after (a) you just have to add the attribute target and its value _blank and the rest will be unchanged. I hope this helped you:)
