This requires the BODY element to be present even if the
start and end tags are omitted. You have to provide some
content for the BODY element. This conflicts with Netscape's
documentation for FRAMESET which says it replaces BODY.

The editors propose to use a DTD entity to control marked
sections to allow the DTD to either have a FRAMESET and no
BODY or a BODY and no FRAMESET depending on the value of
the entity.
