HTLM noob here. I need help with links to tables!

Here's the situation. I have a page with 2 tables on it. In table
one, are several links. The I want the content of the links to show
up in table two. I think this can be done by nameing table 2 say
"table2". Then in the links in table one, have <a
href="http://www.page" target="table2">. But apparently there's
something missing, because when I click the link, the content pops up
in a new window. What I would expect to work would look something
like this:

<table>
<tr>

<td>
<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" target="table2">
<a href="http://www.google.com" target="table2">
<a href="http://www.msn.com" target="table2">
</td>

<td name="table2">
Main stuff that should get replaced by the above websites once clicked
on.
</td>

</tr>
</table>

But I'm doing something wrong. Help? :(

I'm new at HTLM too. Hopefully my HTML experience will fill in the gaps
;-).

You can expect all you like, but you've totally made that techique up.

You're thinking of frames, not tables. Look for a good frames tutorial,
then ignore it completely. Frames are almost always the wrong solution,
and a search on this newsgroup will give you lots of pointers why.

Explain what you're trying to achieve (context, not mechanism), and
we'll suggest something.
