Workaround for Image Map Generated from Navigator

Normally when you have a navigator with simple action URL hotspots, domino will generate it into a image map with simple URL like this:

<AREA SHAPE=rect COORDS="112,2,151,12"
<A HREF="/website1.nsf/0866bb977b770a0f482567e100139867?OpenNavigator"><IMG SRC="/customer/schneider/website1.nsf/0866bb977b770a0f482567e100139867/$ViewMapLayout/0.282?OpenElement&FieldElemFormat=gif" WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=13 USEMAP="" BORDER=0 ISMAP>

but what if you want to have your URL to display in a target frame? One workaround I found is to use a comment tag. So when I use the simple action to enter the URL I type in: http://notes_dev1/website1.nsf/($All)/3D7778F0DE06785F482567E6001D9877?OpenDocument target="_top"> <!--

*note the addition of ' target="_top"> <!-- '.

hope u find this tip useful!
