HTML 4.0 Frameset specifying target frame error

I am currently attempting to use the frameset dtd, however,
the examples in the specification for specifying the target
frame <A href=.. target=..> do not work.

The examples in 16.3 all specify the frameset dtd, but use
the BODY element, which the verifier states is illegal.  I
also tried using the target tag under the strict dtd,
however this also failed, stating that target was unknown.
I also tried putting the target in a style A.top, however
this did not seem to have any effect.  Using the BASE
element also failed as the target tag was unknown (under the
strict dtd).

I am currently using the transitional dtd to solve the
problem, perhaps this is what the example should use as


p.s. I can't get rid of frame borders, using frameborder="0"
just leaves a light grey border under IE4, the only way I
can get rid of them is to use frameborder="no" in
the FRAMESET element - is there a CSS method I can use to
get rid of the borders
or is this an IE4 problem?
