No.

Your raw HTML markup includes the "target" attribute, which is allowed 
in some (X)HTML document types but disallowed in the XHTML 1.0 Strict 
document type.

Configure your software not to output "target" attributes or declare a 
document type where "target" attributes are allowed.

Note this list is for validator-specific questions, not general 
authoring questions.
