href target attribute ignored in HTML help site

    href target attribute ignored in HTML help site

    According to the documentation at  http://support.submain.com/kb/a46/xml-comment-tags-supported-by-ghostdoc.aspx#see, I should be able to add a target="_blank"  attribute when using a <see> or <seealso>. When I generate an HTML help site these attributes do not appear to be honored (the links open up in the child frame). This isn't a major problem as most of the external links play nice inside of the frame. However in some cases I am linking to another HTML help site (generated by GhostDoc) and when these links open I get a nested view of the site which automatically refreshes back  to the home page of the current site. 

    Am I doing something wrong or have I misunderstood this attribute?  I've tried with various targets (_blank,  _parent, etc) and have tried with both <see> and <seealso>

    Is there any word on whether this is a bug or I am doing something wrong? It would be really nice if the target attribute worked to launch external links in a new window.

     

    Thanks~

    We have the v6 Preview scheduled but no ETA at this point for the v5 update. 

    If you email us at support at submain dot com, we will provide you with a private build.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. I e-mailed support a few days ago (after your post). I'm not sure what the turn around is on it but I haven't heard back yet. Either way I do appreciate the offer (and the work you guys do! love it all!)

    My apologies, we are working on a build that will also include a preview of the WYSIWYG editor that is to be included with the v6 and need a day or two to work out a few quirks with the Visual Editor before we make it available.

    Thanks for your patience!
