Here's my quick attempt at getting the PmWiki skin to be
XHTML 1.0 Strict:


Running it against the W3C validation service generates two
errors -- the target= attribute isn't allowed in <a ...>
and the align= attribute isn't allowed in <table ...> .
Anyone know how to do these in a way that is XHTML 1.0 Strict

(The align= attribute issue actually comes from the page markup, 
not PmWiki, so it'd be something the markup would have to change
as opposed to the PmWiki code.)
