Parsing Error in Error?

Bill Braun
Amaya is reporting that the the following code is in error.

<a href="gohere.html" target="_blank">Blah blah blah<a/>

Error message is: line 40, char 0: Invalid XHTML attribute "target" for
the document profile

W3Schools HTML reference offers this as the syntax example.

    The target attribute specifies where to open the linked document:
    <a href="http://www.w3schools.com" target="_blank">Visit W3Schools</a>

Doctype and <head>:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
      "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
  <title></title>
  <meta name="generator" content="Amaya, see http://www.w3.org/Amaya/" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />
  <link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
</head>


Any thoughts on why Amaya does not like the use of "target"?

Follow-on...

I corrected the malformed <a/> to </a> and the error persists.

Hello,

The attribute 'target_' is not allowed for the element <a> in a XHTML
1.0 strict document
Here is the XHTML 1.0 Strict Cheat Sheet:
http://www.w3.org/2010/04/xhtml10-strict.html
This attribute is allowed in the profile XHTML 1.0 Transitional, if you
want to use it, you can change the doctype of your document with the
function Tools > Change Doctype.

Thanks,
Laurent Carcone
