I had a big discussion with a webmaster on a forum.
He said :
- target_blank is autorised with XHTML 1.1
- W3C validator is bad :-(

So I try to explain, but please excuse my faults, English is not my 
maternal language.

http://www.jsand.net/ is not my own site, so if you look at it, perhaps 
it will be corrected.
But I've saved page's source and validator's results.

The doctype is bad :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Strict//EN" 
<title>Astuces Windows XP, Programmation, Cours, Photoshop, 
Webmastering, Programmes, Hacking, Thèmes XP, etc - [JSAND]</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<meta name="title" content="JSAND" />
<meta name="author" content="Julien VAUBOURG" />
<meta name="subject" content="Informatique" />
<meta name="description" content="Astuces pour Windows Xp et autres 
versions, cours HTML, PHP, etc, apprendre à faire un site" />
<meta name="keywords" content="windows, astuces, xp, cours html, cours 
php, thèmes XP, tutoriaux, webmaster" />
<meta name="language" content="Fr" />
<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css_jsand.css" type="text/css" />
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" 

and there are links with target_blank in the code and some other mistakes.

Howether, validator says :

This Page Is Valid -//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Strict//EN!

I've try with WDG validator and this one says :

Errors and Warnings

line 45, character 55: invalid formal public identifier 
"-//W3C//NOTATIONS XHTML Notations 1.0//EN": invalid public text class
line 33, character 35: omitted tag minimization parameter can be omitted 
only if "OMITTAG NO" is specified on the SGML declaration
The maximum number of errors was reached. Further errors in the document 
have not been reported.

Thanks for your interest and your answer.
