iframe and Paypal

    When using the iframe embed code with a Paypal button (Paypal Standard), when the user clicks on the Paypal button to pay for their product or make their donation, will the Paypal redirect appear in the same iframe? Is there a way to force the Paypal redirect to appear in a new tab or to replace the entire current tab (not just the iframe)? Problem is that I'm creating a tiny donation form that will live in a module on the right-hand side of my Joomla template. It would be really confusing if, after clicking the Pay Now button, the user is redirected to Paypal.com within the same little iframe in which the Donation form lives. Hope that makes sense. Thx.

    Paypal already opens in the current window. It busts the included frame and replaces the current page.
