different doctype in a website is against standards???

Hi all, I am validating a site for my web assignment which is frame based. My problem is that when i validate the main page (frame based) with doctype frameset there are no errors, but when i validate all other pages(with doctype frameset) the problems begin!!!. I can solve the problem by naming all other pages doctype transitional but the question is can i do so or its against standards?

A frameset page is a different animal from the other page types. A frameset page contains other web pages while the other web pages are normal ones. So a frameset page needs a frameset doctype but the other pages are not framesets so you should use a different doctype.

I say 'different' doctype because there is no need for transitional in new web pages. You should always use 'strict'.
