Rows attribute?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Samuël van Laere, Oct 29, 2003.

  1. Do framesets have a row attribute?

    The reason why i'm asking:
    According to the validator there is no such thing,
    though according to the specification it does exist?

    Which is the correct answer?

    You say one in the subject and the other here. Could thet be the
    problem?

    Yes, the frameset element has a rows attribute.

    Are you using the frameset doctype?

    Otherwise, what's the URI?

    Hi Steve,

    I'm talking about the ROWS attribute here.
    Validate this URL and you'll see a lot of errors:
    http://www.aceview.nl/

    It uses a frameset though its not my website.
    The creator of that website wrote to me:

    ' The HTML validator claims there is no ROW attribute.
    While the specification *does* describe the ROW attribute '

    That is why i wonder why the validator is making this claim.
    There's a lot of errors on there anyway.

    The page is telling lies to the validator and the doesn't like that.

    The page claims to be written HTML 4.01 Transitional:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

    In this version of HTML there is no frameset element, let alone no
    rows attribute.

    Frameset pages should use the Frameset variant:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN">

    f we over ride the doctype then the number of validation errosr is
    substantially reduced:
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=h...tically)&doctype=HTML 4.01 Frameset&verbose=1

  5. Thanks a lot for your help Steve.

    I've forwarded your answer to the webmaster, at least it should become clear
    to him/her that the validator is correct in reporting the errors.
