How it works!

We all the know the target attribute of anchor tags. Generally we use target attribute “_blank” to open link in new window, we also use this target attribute in JavaScript as “_self”.

Anchor tag can also target the iframe, just put your iframe name in your anchor target attribute and anchor tag link will be visible to your iframe src.
