I can't tell whether this is the address for comments on the Spec or 
comments on the document describing the spec (if there's a distinction). 
If this is the wrong address could you please forward it to the 
appropriate parties?

In trying to validate some XHTML documents I have discovered what I 
think is a problem in the spec: There is no "target" attribute in any of 
the elements in the Strict set, only in those in the Frameset spec. Yet 
you can't have a body element outside a noframes element in the Frameset 
spec. Therefore it seems to be impossible to apply a target attribute 
tom say, and 'a' element, in a page in a frameset -- the page can't be 
Frameset spec because it contains no frameset and can't be Strict spec 
because it contains 'target' attributes.

If I'm mistaken I would appreciate someone giving me a simple example of 
a set of frameset documents that does validate for XHTML 1.0.

Thanks in advance,
