I have been testing my frameset files against the W3C XHMTL 1.0 Frameset
validator and have found that it is generating errors that should not be

One of the errors that the W3C validator generator reports is:

Error:  There is no attribute for "frameborder" for this element (in this
HTML version)

Since I have the following in everyone of my frameset documents, including
the latest one tested:

<!DOCTYPE html
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN"

there should be no "frameborder" error generated for a line such as the one

<frameset rows="80,*" cols="640,*" frameborder="0" framespacing="0">

All lines are in accordance with HTML 4.01, which is part and parcel of
XHTML 1.0 specification.

Since the last threaded message is dated June 30, 2000, does this mean
everyone is ignoring W3C and its validators?  I find this disturbing since I
am trying to emphasize in my client deliverables the value of W3C and using
its validation toolsets as a "value-add" for well-formed code.
