target=_new problems

Just aquired the menu system a couple days ago, tested it, loved it, and bought the license today!

Origianl testing with 3.x and no problems, but with ver 5 I am finding that some windows that I request open in a new window, such as
url=.......; target=_new;.... some of the windows open new, but a couple would not. I compared the problem menu items with others that worked, and saw nothing at all wrong in the syntax.

I started off by converting the 3.x menu with the converter here. (a few errors there) :-) then modified using the sample menu in ver 5 as a guide.

Everything works great "except" the windows that would not open as new.
Currently changed them to not do so. No example availabel at the moment, only have a test page up with the 3.x version.

Any ideas are appreciated. It's not a major issue at the moment, but I'd like to know what to look for as a possible problem fix.

I'll do that, but it still confounds me that some of the target=_new with no quots will work, and some not.

Maybe if all have the quots the issue will dissolve.

I've always used _blank and don't remember the other definitions, there was something about target on the website.

A URL would be good to look at (as the posting window suggests)...

As for syntax, target=_new; (no quotes, single or double), is correct.
