Vierd question :-)

I came across a frames set built site and found out that in IE the main
frame (only frame with scrolling allowed) have a horizontal scroll list.
Since Mozilla don't show that list, I get curious about what causes it
in IE.

After some checking in the code (and testing) I see that the pages have
the full doctype code inluded, like
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

If I remove the link to "loose.dtd" from the code, the horizontal scroll
list disappear! Everything else on the page is as before, only the above
is change to the "shorter version" <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD
HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

Can somebody tell me what's wrong with IE that's give a horizontal
scroll list only because of the link in the doctype declaration?

Thank's for the link, interesting! I will look deeper in to it, but as I
see now there is pages that validate. No deprecated cades and no
proprietary codes that at least is not supported by IE :-)

The content is just simple text (with very few HTML tag's) that should
fit in the inner width of the frame. But if there is nothing else that
can cause the list in IE, then I guess there is something and I need to
look closer in to the page. Maybee I can "invent" something new here :-)

I can't remember if I have notice that before. Well, I don't use IE much
either. :-)

I belive there is a bug in IE, since I can't find anything in the HTML
on the mentioned page that can cause the error. But it would be of
interest to read more about the bug somwhere, so if you have a URL on
hand it would be great? :-)
