Details:
At the August 25, 2005, teleconference I took an action item to propose a
new example 2 for GL 3.2 that would talk about using the title attribute
to indicate that a link opens in a new window.  (...)

Example:
<p>Read more about failed elephant evacuation: <a
href="http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/africa/08/25/kenya.elephants.ap/index.html" 

target="_blank" title="link opens in new window">Evacuation Crumbles Under
Jumbo load</a></p>

This is only viable in HTML 4.01 (because target attribute is removed in
XHTML 1.0 strict)
</blockquote>

The target attribute is not in HTML 4.01 Strict or XHTML 1.0 Strict, but
is allowed in both HTML 4.01 Transitional/Loose and XHTML 1.0 Transitional
(and the Frameset DTDs).

Christophe Strobbe
