What is the correct use for "target" in the Create Hotspot window? How does the target differ from the html page?

There are several useful special values like:
  • _self specifies the current frame in the current window.
  • _blank specifies a new window.
  • _parent specifies the parent of the current frame.
  • _top specifies the top-level frame in the current window.
or you can use them to target a popup window or (i)frame.
see for example

and for QuickTime: ... ml#targetn
