First, you should have read the feedback instructions, that would  
have explained that you are required to:
1) add a meaningful subject to your message, hence making it easier  
for others to read and reply.
2) look at the archives for previous discussions on e.g framespacing.  
There are a few...
3) not use this feedback mechanism as a help desk on web authoring  
and validation.
   There are plenty of other lists and forums for that:
   http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html#needhelp


Anyway, your problem is described in the explanation that goes with  
the error message:
[[
You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the  
document type you are using does not support that attribute for this  
element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict"  
document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the  
"Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), or by  
using vendor proprietary extensions such as "marginheight" (this is  
usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).
]]

The attributes you are trying to use do not exist in XHTML 1.0  
Frameset, for the elements you are using. You should try using CSS  
for presentation.

Hope this helps.
