I am currently reading the tutorial HTML Doctype

HTML 4.01 Strict
This DTD contains all HTML elements and attributes, but does NOT INCLUDE presentational or deprecated elements (like font and center). Framesets are not allowed:



I am trying to use Strict doctype as below but the frameset is still showing.


Can you please guide me how to use each doctype properly with an example

Regards,
Vanlal

Why bother with all that mess? Just use the HTML5 doctype of:

<!DOCTYPE html>

and write to modern standards.

Well, your HTML document may well be invalid because it doesn't conform to its DTD. However browsers don't require well-formed and valid HTML, they will make their best effort to make some sense of even the worst example of tag soup. In your case I expect the browsers would just ignore the DTD and carry on with the HTML which they see.
