Without the URL of the document in question it's hard to say what the
problem definately is. From these two errors it looks like you should be
using the Frameset DTD but you are using the strict DTD. I can't say
more without a URL.

If HTML Tidy doesn't consider using having target as an attribute with a
strict DTD a validation error then it's wrong. It could be some other
issue, but it's hard to say without a URL.

There is a feedback link at the bottom of every page and in the menu.

The error messages attempt to address the most common causes of the
error and often suggest a fix.
