In the DTD for the Hypertext module:


There is the following comment:

"This module declares the anchor ('a') element type,
which defines the source of a hypertext link. The
destination (or link 'target') is identified via its
'id' attribute rather than the 'name' attribute as was
used in HTML."

However, the element attributes underneath do not list
a 'target' attribute which would be used to specify
the link target by ID.

So is the 'target' attribute missing by accident, or
is that attribute being deliberately left out? If its
being got rid of, then the comment should be changed,

PS: If target is staying in, I'd like to know if
target="_top" is still likely to be supported.
