That is correct.

1) I don't think you can use style sheets to control borders
  around frames (although you might experiment with the 'border'
  property in CSS; see http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2)

2) You can experiment with the "frameborder" property on the FRAME
element.

3) Certain browsers may support non-standard attributes, but I don't
   recommend this for reasons of interoperability.

I have not tested any of these solutions myself.
