Which tutorial were you following that gave you a Doctype for HTML 3.2
along with code for a <frameset> (which was not introduced until HTML
4.0?).

See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/frames.html for the correct code
and http://allmyfaqs.net/faq.pl?Problems_with_using_frames for why
frames are not recommended.

(I read the mailing list, please direct responses there and do not CC me.( Thanks)
