Strict version description is wrong

Section 7.2. "HTML version information" says:

"The HTML 4.01 Strict DTD 
includes 
all elements and attributes 
that have not been deprecated or do not appear in frameset documents."

This is not true: 
IFRAME (16.5) has not been deprecated but it is not strict.

"The HTML 4.01 Transitional DTD 
includes 
everything in the strict DTD 
plus deprecated elements and attributes 
(most of which concern visual presentation)."

This is true but not complete 
because 
IFRAME is strictly transitional and it is not deprecated.

Since this text is informative, it should be easy to fix.
