GlacierFrameset: the attribute "frameborder" is causing a 'white space'
error

Yes, I know "framespacing" is not a recognized attribute, but I need to
include it here to overcome the 'white space' error, and more importantly,
to help demonstrate the problem to your good selves.

Just in case it's peculiar to certain browsers etc., I'm using: Microsoft
Internet Explorer version 6.0.2800.1106IS & operating Windows 98 SE with all
known Windows critical updates installed and up to date.

Try your own example by visiting your link>
http://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_frame_cols

Please test by editing your html in the left panel so that it matches
exactly that below:

<html>

<frameset cols="25%,50%,25%">

  <frame src="frame_a.htm" frameborder="0">
  <frame src="frame_b.htm" frameborder="0">
  <frame src="frame_c.htm" frameborder="0">

</frameset>

</html>

Now click your "Edit the text and click me" button - notice the undesired
'white space' either side of "Frame B"?

Similarly, if you try your example using "frameset rows" except the 'white
space' appears horizontally.

Of course, if you now continue to edit just the second line so it reads:
<frameset cols="25%,50%,25%" framespacing="0">

and then click the "Edit the text and click me" button once more - the
'white space' vanishes - and you have the desired effect.

I don't know how to fix this - I'm only an amateur trying my best to write
web pages in valid HTML 4.01 (before attempting XHTML).  All I can do is ask
that you please, please help.  Thank you.
