The validator does not recognize the iframe tag, but on the w3schools web site,
you list the iframe tag as valid xhtml.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2005-10-09 14:53:10 UTC
Do you have a URL of a document that can be used to reproduce this? 
By the way, w3schools is not the best resource regarding valid markup.  Search  
for "w3schools" at for more  
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2005-10-09 14:57:44 UTC
Also note that w3schools is not affiliated with the W3C in any way. 
Comment 3 Olivier Thereaux 2007-02-22 06:13:18 UTC
As explained in:
the iframe element is only available in Transitional Doctypes.

See test cases:
former not valid, latter is.
