Ladies and Gentlemen,

using validator.w3.org, I got the following message:


    This page is not Valid HTML 4.01
    <http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/> Strict!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML 
parser.

   1. Line 271 <http://validator.w3.org/check#line-271>, column 18:
      there is no attribute "TARGET" (explain...
      <http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html#attr-undef>).

          <a target="_blank" title="Seite kommentieren" href="http://wwwuv2.uni-mu
                    ^

I think, this cannot be correct, or is it? Can I not use "target" in 
"a"-elements???
Yours sincerely
Peter Kramer
