Erik,

Just to be clear, do you propose adding @target on submission element AND load action?

Kind regards,

Nick,

I don't think target="new" is right. It was a placeholder for the
topic to discuss. The original request doesn't mention "new". [1]

I can see a double reason to use @target instead of @show:

- it's compatible with HTML
- it allows you to target a named tab/window ("browsing context" in
HTML parlance [2])

In other words, @target is a superset of @show.

Contrary to what the minutes say, @target doesn't seem to be
deprecated in HTML5. At least I don't see any mention of that.

So I would use @target.

All,

I have action https://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/xforms/actions/1909 to add
a target attribute on submission and load element supporting value 'new'.
But we already have a 'show' attribute with value 'new' on the load element.

Shouldn't we add a 'show' attribute on submission then?
