In case of frames, it is often usefull to change only one frame window.
Therefore, the optional target attribute can be used in anchor and link tags.
But this attribute is disregarded in the menus of the site navigation bar.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a frameset files set.
2.Add a link tag in the header like
<link rel="contents" href="sitemap.html" title="Site Map" target="Main_Frame" />

Actual Results:  The page called in the link tag is opened at the window's top,
not in the belonging frame window.

Another example

<title>test target attribute in link elements</title>
<link rel="prev" href="" target="mytarget">
<link rel="next" href="">
</head><body>Test target attribute in link element<br>
go to <a href="" target="mytarget">mytarget</a> - opens a
new window<br>
go to <a href="">mytarget</a> without a target - stays in
this window<br>
look at Site Navigation Bar<br>
&nbsp; prev has the target<br>
&nbsp; next does not<br>

Reassigning obsolete bugs to their respective Seamonkey owners (i.e. nobody). 
If you want this fixed for Firefox, change the Product and Component accordingly
and reassign back to me.
