Subject: HTML suggestion

I suppose you are the ones who decide how HTML will work in the future?
If so, I would like to suggest an extension to the <A tag, which can
probably prove very useful:
one should be able to open two or more HTML-documents at the same time,
from one <A tag, with different targets, separated with, for example, a
semicolon (;).

A concrete example: suppose that you have a site with three frames. From
a link in frame_1, you wish to go to one HTML-document in Frame_2, and
another in Frame_3. The tag might look like this: <A HREF="url_2.html"
TARGET="Frame_2" ; HREF="url_3.html" TARGET="Frame_3">Link</A>.

And to avoid collisions in cases when the links have the same or no
target, then in such cases the link will only open the first or the last
document listed.

I think this extension can be very useful for lots of people, especially
in greater sites.

Yours Truly,
