You're right, but I was looking at the "human readable" specification, which
does not list the target attribute as depreciated.

In the latest version http://www.w3.org/TR/PR-html40/index/attribs.html
neither "Depreciated" nor "Loose DTD" are listed against target (implying

In http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40-971218/index/attributes.html it was
listed as "Depreciated" and "Loose DTD" (but no mention of Frameset DTD)

it is once again neither "Depreciated" nor "Loose DTD".

So, clearly some problem in the documentation. I realise that the DTD itself
is the final word, but I still think the matter deserves clarification.
