My html code was bad
The html code that I was supposed to copy and paste was bad. It was unable to parse because the target tag was improperly assigned and _top should have been in quotes. I could insert the quotes myself, but then I'm not certain that I'll be properly linked if a crawler is used to check the code.
that would be just fine. This, as a support issue, would have been seen sooner had you used the support forum rather than the discussion forum.
But, feel free to edit the target attribute.
