Pico Search

I've just addedd Pico Search to my website that i created with Dreamweaver. When I pressed F12 to preview the site and then used Pico Search a separate window opened with the search results. This is exactly what I wanted it to do.

When I uploaded the changes however and then used Pico Search, a separate results window did not appear. Instead I was taken out of my site to a new window showing the Pico Search results.

I've checked the code and the target has been set as blank which should open a new page.

" target="_blank"

Any idea where I might be going wrong or is this a quirk of Pico Search?

It may have something to do with "target" being deprecated in HTML 4.0 strict and XHTML 1.0 strict. This 3 page article may be of interest. click here

Thanks for that. I noticed that the same thing happens on other sites that use this particular search facility including those that appear as examples on the Pico wbsite.

I had a look at the article and am not sure that I've got the competence to try the fix suggested.

Many thanks for taking the time to get back to me.
