i didn't go to the website to verify this, but since the parser even
attempted to validate that means you either manually overrode the
doctype or properly added one to your document.

to make a long story short and to paraphrase what the parser said, you
can't have the "border" attribute in a <frameset> tag. therefore if you
want the error to go away, remove the attribute and put it in CSS.

use this link to "check which elements this element may be contained


hope that helps.
