Yes, but if you think about it....frames deal with presentation and does 
not really give context to the information contained within the page. I 
believe Strict HTML is meant purely to give context and nothing else....ie 
what we'd use if browser companies got off their butt and fully supported 
both HTML and all flavors of CSS.
