two, to be exact.

1. your page will functionally work the same whether or not it
validates. the technicality of the page is what people get worked up
about. in other words, it's not really a big deal if you leave
border="0" in your code and your page doesn't officially validate.

2. i don't think you have a choice, ns4.x (afaik) does not support the
border attribute. i could be wrong. someone let me know.
