Hi,

If this turns out to not be a bug, but something I have done wrong, please
let me know, otherwise, I hope this helps.

I have been trying to validate a page I am working on, but one of my links
keeps giving me the message:
*Line 168<http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.benchmarkpayments.com%2Fdeveloper%2Fservicewhileufly%2Findex.html&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=0&verbose=1&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.654#line-168>,
Column 62*: Attribute "target" exists, but can not be used for this element..

="http://www.motorcheck.ie" title="MotorCheck" target=*"*_blank">MotorCheck</a>


This line in question is:
<a href="http://www.motorcheck.ie" title="MotorCheck"
target="_blank">MotorCheck</a>

If i duplicate this line any number of times, it ONLY gives me the error for
the FIRST LINK
IE, in the following, only the Motorcheck1 link returns the error (and they
are copy/pasted);
<a href="http://www.motorcheck.ie" title="MotorCheck"
target="_blank">MotorCheck1</a>
<a href="http://www.motorcheck.ie" title="MotorCheck"
target="_blank">MotorCheck2</a>
<a href="http://www.motorcheck.ie" title="MotorCheck"
target="_blank">MotorCheck3</a>


The URL is

http://www.benchmarkpayments.com/developer/servicewhileufly/index.php

The full content of the page is:
