@Daniel Skinner the target attribute cannot be used in XHTML Strict, but is perfectly valid for Transitional. If you build in transitional then you can apply the following:

/* external link with no target=”_blank” specified */

a[href^=“http:”]:not([target=”_blank”]) { border-bottom: 5px solid blue;
}

This happily highlights an external link without a target=”_blank” specified but adding a bottom border in blue allowing

a[href]:not([title]) { border: 5px solid red;
}

to still operate. I really like the rel used alongside dom for Strict markup, I will have to look into this. Thanks.
