I am one error away from having my new template validate under XHTML 4.01 Strict. I am getting: Line 122, Column 136: there is no attribute "onClick".

Where I use it is in the code snippet.

How can I get this functionality to validate under XHTML Strict?
<a onclick="window.print()" href="#">Print</a>

Open in new window

do you have onClick or onclick ? and there is no XHTML 4.01 Strict, only HTML 4.01 Strict and there onclick/all attributes are written in lowecase.

It may not be possible to get it to validate Strict, but this page may lead you to a workaround:

I'm sorry- typo- XHTML 1.0 Strict; I actually used the javascript fix to getaround the _blank target problem; degrades gracefully..

But the onclick problem is a little more elusive.

also in XHTML the onclick attribute must be written in lowercase.

You can eliminate it altogether:

Just write
<a href="javascript:void(window.print());">Print</a>

Open in new window
