Hi Shane,

Any reason then why validating against
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd should pass target="whatever"
attribute as OK? or indeed, the ED version's DTD.

I tried with this, to make sure the validator's catalog was not the culprit

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
     <form action="" target="something">
<div><input type="button" name="submit"/></div>
<p target="blank"><a target="blank" href="whatever">foo</a></p>

 and got a single error for the <p>. target in form and a passed just fine.
Any idea what's up?
