Apparently you’re not using any style sheets on the pages in question (validate [1] and Co. instead), but concerning the document type, consider using an HTML 4.01 document type [2], “Frameset” for your frameset document (“index.html”), probably “Transitional” for the other pages. Then validate [3] the markup as well.

You might also want to check if you really need a frameset [4] before fine-tuning your HTML/CSS skills. Both CSS and HTML validator will be your friend :)
