HTML forms have a lot of moving parts, and one such part is the “target” attribute. At a high level, the “target” attribute in HTML forms allows us to specify where we want the output or response of the form to be displayed.

iFrames, or inline frames, have been a part of HTML for many years and allow you to embed another HTML page within your current page.

The “target” attribute is part of the tag and is used to determine where the response from the form submission will be displayed. One of its possible values is the name of an iFrame that exists on the page.
