18.4 Creating jumps to particular windows for
You can assign a particular window type as a
jump destination. A window assignment can specify jumps the following
jumps from a character or paragraph format
jumps to a particular file or URL
jumps to a particular window.
A window assignment supplies a value for the
target attribute of the <a href=...>
tag Mif2Go generates for the jump. If you are
using framesets that value must be the name of a frame (see §12.12
Using framesets), possibly one of
• A jump
to _top gets you out of a frameset; it does
not open a new window.
• A jump
to _blank always opens a new window.
A jump to a window with a non-reserved name,
if the window is not in the current frameset (if any), opens a window
of that name; and the next jump to the same name reuses that same window.
Specify window by jump format
You can use a character format to mark all jumps
to a particular window type. For example:
; doc format = name of frame to use for jumps
from within this style
; For OmniHelp ALink and KLink jumps, targets
make no sense
; and are ignored.
If you know that such jumps always occur in a
particular type of paragraph, such as Step
paragraphs in procedures, you could use a paragraph format. For example:
Specify window by jump destination
If you know that all jumps to a particular HTML
page (such as glossary.htm) should go to a
particular window type, you can specify the window to use for that page.
; filename (no ext) or URL destination = target
frame to be used
; a URL destination is the last element in the
URL (no extension)
Specify window with a marker
If you need case-by-case handling of jumps to
other windows, put a marker of type LinkTarget
(see §28.2 Adding
custom marker types), with marker content the name of
the window, anywhere before the relevant hypertext jump marker.
