hello!

i think that the validator has a problem...

my sourse code is this: (HTML)

<iframe
src="http://www.shoutmix.com/box/sakis_the_fraud/"
width="140%"
height="450%"
scrolling="No"
frameborder="1">
</iframe>

and the validator says that this is false!

GOD!

how this is false?

it says this...


    Error         Line 39 column 4:         there is no attribute "src".
src="http://www.shoutmix.com/box/sakis_the_fraud/"
                 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).     
            This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in       the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no       supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error       message for further information.     
            How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute,        (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or        check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or       use CSS instead of this attribute. If you received this error when using the        <embed> element to incorporate flash media in a Web page, see the        FAQ item on valid flash.

                 You have used the element named above in your document, but the       document type you are using does not define an element of that name.       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 "Frameset" document type to get        the "<frameset>" element),
      by using vendor proprietary extensions such as "<spacer>"       or "<marquee>" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve       the desired effect instead).
      by using upper-case tags in XHTML (in XHTML attributes and elements       must be all lower-case.
