Hi shian,

My code is invalid only according to canonical/arbitrary rule and that's the point.

Nope, it isn’t.

"Nope, it isn’t" - is a statement, not an evidence.

https://validator.w3.org/check tells me about your test.html:

Line 13, Column 52: there is no attribute "target"

…ef="https://www.rapideuphoria311.com/" target="_blank">rapideuphoria311.com</a>

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), […].

This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for further information.

How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute, (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, […]

The fact that major browsers are supporting the principle of Common Law is an evidence - not a statement.

What you wrote before about a “moving target” is true for browser’s interpretations [sic] of the standard of the W3C. The latter is much more consistent and stable.
