# This attribute specifies the name of a frame where a document is to be  
opened.
#
# By assigning a name to a frame via the name attribute, authors can refer  
to it as the
# "target" of links defined by other elements. The target attribute may be  
set for
# elements that create links (A, LINK), image maps (AREA), and forms  
(FORM).

Notice which section of the HTML specification 'target' is described in.  
That's right -- the Frames section. XHTML 1.1 doesn't have Frames. Neither  
will XHTML 2.0. @target is deprecated and doesn't exist in neither HTML  
4.01 Strict nor XHTML 1.0 Strict. Its use is prescribed and is behavioural.

'rel' values like 'alternate' and 'related' would make more advisory and  
semantic and would fit into everything from HTML 4.01 to XHTML 2.0 to  
HTML5.
