There are no frames in the strict DTD, so naturally "target"
is not there.  This is the case in HTML 4.01 as well.

The &apos; entity makes sense in XHTML.  The XML rec requires
XML processors (including XHTML browsers) to recognize &apos;
anyway.  Or rather, that's my reading of the spec.  The wording
is vague:

Section 2.4 paragraph 5
