I have searched the mailinglist, with no result, and I still think this
is an error, so here it is:

------- test.html begin --------------------------------
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">
<HTML>
	<HEAD>
	<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
	<TITLE>Great links</TITLE>
	</HEAD>
<BODY>
	<H1>Great links</H1>
	<P>Visit <A TARGET="_blank" href="http://www.w3c.org/">W3C</A>.</P>
</BODY>
</HTML>
------- test.html end --------------------------------

The validator complains that "TARGET" is not an Attribute (of A).
If I force Traditional 4.0, no errors are stated.

The 4.01 manual says it is an attribute (defined otherwhere) - is this
a "melt-down" from XHTML, or is it my brain having a "melt-down".

Kind regards

Kurt
