    Hi, Ive nearly finished building a website for a college assignment, its built in Dreamweaver CS4 using html and css. I have attached a flash navigational menu and now want to link the images to the pages in my website. In the xml file used to edit the flash menu I had target="_blank" alreay in place and the pages open fine in a new window... but, when I change the _bland to_self.. so the pages should open in the same window but nothing happens when I click the mouse on the image!!!
    Does anyone know why this could be or has anyone had this problem before?
    P.S. THERE IS ALOT OF NOTES IN HERE!

    
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    		<object param="useRandomOrdering" value="0" /> <!-- 0 or 1. if "1", the image order will be randomized -->

    		<item spacing="3" align="center">
    			<!-- spacing - the distance, in pixels, between two images.

    For want to open image in the same window you should not mention any target=_ code. Just remove this target="_self"/ in the code and your page will be open in the same window.
