How can I get this to validate as 4.01 strict

Hi,

Can anyone help me to get this third party code to validate as 4.01
strict.

<form action="http://**********.org. uk/draw/draw_data.php" method="post"
target="PageNam e" onsubmit="windo w.open
('about:blank', 'PageName','dir ectories=0,heig ht=600,width=81 5,location=
0,menubar=0,res izable=1,scroll bars=1,status=1 ,toolbar=0')">
<img src="http://**********.org. uk/draw/images/lottery.gif"
width="110" height="20" alt="********* Lottery Nomination form"
align="middle">
<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Nomina te us
in the
monthly ********** UK Draw </font>
<input type="hidden" name="charity" value="YOUR CHARITY NAME HERE">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Nominate Now">
</form>

it validates as transitional but gives errors for the target="PageNam e"
and align="middle" and Font tag

The key thing is to generate a pre-sized popup without the un-necessary
navigation things + feed the charity name via a hidden field, I.e.

<input type="hidden" name="charity" value="Animals in Distress">

into their system at

<form action="http://**********.org. uk/draw/draw_data.php" method="post"
etc etc
I can remove the font tag to the style sheet but just can't think what to
do about the other problems.

You can't. They're not a part of HTML 4.01 strict, so you cannot do
that. You have two choices, stop trying to do that, or redeclare the
page as something that does allow it (e.g. HTML 4.01 loose).

It's like asking how do I have a red car but with blue paint. The two
are mutually exclusive. You can't do it.

Think carefully about whether a pop-up is a good idea. I hate them,
many others do, and many browsers now reject pop-ups as they're a common
pain.

I'm trying to validate my code and I can't figure out what kind of doctype I have. The validator can't tell me anything because it can't move beyond the doctype declaration. http://www.wavian.com/clients/pugwash/ Is there anyway to tell what kind of doctype this is? I tried inserting a few different types (please excuse me if this is the stupid way to do it, I am learning...) but am unsuccessful.

I've been maintaining some source code, and I've noticed some radical inconsistency in the code, particularly in the way that parameters are validated. I've noticed that this seems to have been pretty much the case throughout my career. For instance, consider the following block: If siteId <= 0 Then Throw New ArgumentOutOfRangeException("siteId") End If
