Is Something Wrong with the W3C Validator

P: n/a
I have been trying to validate my web site using the W3C validation service
and have been having a hard time with Framesets. I don't know if it is me,
or the validator, but I can not get any frames to validate correctly - my
own, or even others, including the W3C's own examples.

The results I get are:
1.. Line 6, column 15: there is no attribute "ROWS" (explain...).
<FRAMESET ROWS="70%,30%" COLS="33%,33%,34%">
^2.. Line 6, column 30: there is no attribute "COLS"
(explain...).
<FRAMESET ROWS="70%,30%" COLS="33%,33%,34%">3.. Line 6, column 43: element
"FRAMESET" undefined (explain...). <FRAMESET ROWS="70%,30%"
COLS="33%,33%,34%">
4.. etc.Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Jeff

Before going any further... are you using the frameset DOCTYPE?

This is the suggestive one. It doens't recognise <frameset>. That
probably means that you've got the wrong doctype. The only doctypes
that contain <frameset> are HTML 4.0 Frameset, HTML 4.01 Frameset and
XHTML 1.0 Frameset. Nothing else, not even the Transitional ones,
contain frameset or frame.

But without an URL the above is just a guess.

Thanks, for your help. I was using the wrong doctype. It now validates
fine.
