Hey guys,

I was using the validator and I got an error on the following line of HTML 
(4.01 strict).

<td rowspan="2"><a href="/link?menuId=60913" target="_top"><img 
src="interface/GlobalNavigation/AboutUs.gif" width="66" height="40"    
alt="Find ATM" name="Find ATM"></a></td>

The error I got was:
Error: there is no attribute "TARGET" for this element (in this HTML 
version)

However, when I go look at the spec I find
(http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/links.html#edef-A):

...
Attributes defined elsewhere

id, class (document-wide identifiers)
lang (language information), dir (text direction)
title (element title)
style (inline style information )
shape and coords (image maps)
onfocus, onblur, onclick, ondblclick, onmousedown, onmouseup, onmouseover, 
onmousemove, onmouseout, onkeypress, onkeydown, onkeyup (intrinsic events )
target (target frame information)
tabindex (tabbing navigation)
accesskey (access keys)

Who is right?
Adam
