Good!  That's the second step to recovery, reading the spec! :)

You put the BODY element within the NOFRAMES element.  That works
for me and it validates.

Well, you could always use Cascading Style Sheets.  (I know, I know,
you probably don't want to hear about those either -- but someday
you will, and trust me, you will probably think they're neat although
frustrating due to crappiness on the part of Netscape and Microsoft.)

BODY is allowed.  Turn off weblint. :)


PS:  CSS lets you define link colors, background colors, etc. in
      a far more useful way than attributes on BODY do!
