What exactly is your feedback? What document were you trying to  
validate, what problems did you face? Does your feedback mean you  
think there is a bug in the validator, or do you have a suggestion to  
improve its error message?
Your feedback prose is... meager, and we on the mailing-list are only  
left to guess.


P.S: the target attribute is generally only available in transitional  
flavors of HTML. If you want it, use XHTML 1.0 Transitional or HTML  
4.01 Transitional. If you want to use the strict document type, then  
forget about target - it has usability flaws anyway.
