Unfortuantely the HTML 4 spec doesn't include the "border" attribute, but I see the following options available:
1.  Accept that your page will look horrible until people use browsers that conform to the frames spec (such browsers are currently non-existant).
2.  Live with one trivial HTML error.
3.  Extend the HTML 4 DTD to allow this attribute.  See http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/cutomdtd.html for details.

  Hi,

  You probably heard this one before, but since I'm new
  with w3c.org I ask it anyway:

  In the html 4 specification the frameset tag doesn't
  allow the border parameter within the tag, only frameborder
  is valid within the frame tag. But if I don't use the border
  attribute within the frameset tag my entire page is screwed
  up by spaces between all the frames. This seems to be
  the problem both in internet explorer and netscape.
  You have any idea how I can stick with the html 4 specs
  without having a messy page ?

  thanx,

  Dennis
