JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Simple Lightbox Adding New Attribute Values with attr()

[Solved] using jQuery, how do I add the target attribute with the value of "_blank" to a class

'''var target = _blank; $(".external").attr(target);'''

is my code. I get the error "can't find the variable: _blank"

I got this figured out from responses to same challenge questions from others, so never mind & thanks!
