I guess you are using XHTML 1.0 strict.
Here is the DTD fragment that defines element a and its attributes
in XHTML 1.0 strict:

<!ELEMENT a %a.content;>
<!ATTLIST a
  %attrs;
  charset     %Charset;      #IMPLIED
  type        %ContentType;  #IMPLIED
  name        NMTOKEN        #IMPLIED
  href        %URI;          #IMPLIED
  hreflang    %LanguageCode; #IMPLIED
  rel         %LinkTypes;    #IMPLIED
  rev         %LinkTypes;    #IMPLIED
  accesskey   %Character;    #IMPLIED
  shape       %Shape;        "rect"
  coords      %Coords;       #IMPLIED
  tabindex    %Number;       #IMPLIED
  onfocus     %Script;       #IMPLIED
  onblur      %Script;       #IMPLIED
  >

see: http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd

As you can see, target is not a valid attribute for element a in
this DTD.
By the way, src is also an invalid attribute for element a in all DTDs.
