Tips and Notes

Note: If you want to validate a page containing frames, be sure the doctype is set to "Frameset DTD". Read more about doctypes.

Important: You cannot use the body element together with the frameset element. However, if you add a <noframes> tag containing some text for browsers that do not support frames, you will have to enclose the text in a body element.
