framesets and borders

I'm currently bugfixing my site with the w3c validator and came across the
following problem:
I created a frameset that divides my site into 3 colums, and the column in
the middle is divided
into 2 rows. If I validate the page with validator.w3.org, I get the note
that the "border
is not a valid attribute for <frameset>.

If I remove this tag, the borders show up an mess up my layout. If I use 
all <frame> tags, there is a small white line (approx 3px) displayed instead
of the default 
border. But since the background of the web is gray, this also messes it up.

I have tried all possible solutions I could think of, but I either have a
w3c conform source with
borders, or a clean layout that's not w3c conform.

Is there any way to hide the borders, just like with the border
g _and_
produce clean code?

For easier reading, I left away the meta tags (DC. tags) in the source below

Thnx for helping
