Target is still valid using the Framset DTD, but if you are not using
frames you should do one of the following:
- use JavaScript (onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" in your
links...or something similar)
- create a custom DTD with target as a valid attribute

The former is much easier, and probably better, too.
