test case loads empty page.  remove the <form> and all it's content, and the page would load as expected if it could find the src of the frames

just a guess...I think it's illegal to have the following construct

<form>...</form>   <!-- note, this <form> implies a <body> -->

I'll bet you a buck that we're not recognizing this document as a frameset
because of the <form>.  If the <form> wasn't there, we'd probably display just
fine.  But the <form> causes an implicit <body>, and you can't have a <body> and
a <frameset> in the same document.  We're doing the "right" thing here, AFAICT.
 But we're clearly not backwards compatible.

Rick, Harish, back me up on this, will you?

is this a quirks bug, or maybe just evangalism?

Buster, take a look at bug 62912 for that one, it's an evangwanted most def.
Friendly, HJ. (And shit, I didn't see this one around before seeing 62912)

from bug 62912, tranferring Comments From H-J 2000-12-15 00:01 -------

I like to take this one, thank you.

1 - I'm missing a document type description like this one for example:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/frameset.dtd">  2 - there seems to be at least
3 JavaScript parts above the <html><head> section
on that page! That's illegal HTML format.

3 - Try to use: <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"> instead
of: <script language="JavaScript">  4 - the <title></title> elements are
missing, every HTML page needs one. Even
    if you don't use them. See W3C HTML guidelines also!

5 - Seems to be a frameset, with an form in it!! Yeah right!

H-J's Tips for the web'master':
1 - always validate your pages at: http://validator.w3c.org/check 2 - consider
using Dave Ragget's 'Tidy'. You may find that, for free, at:
http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ 3 - and taking a look at:
http://www.htmlhelp.com/ might be really interesting
for you!

So, for now, evangwanted!
Friendly, HJ, see you next time around on planet Mozilla.

AFAIK, we are doing the correct thing ( keep in mind the above URL is totally 
wacky! ) by opening up a BODY for the INPUT. Too bad that we are not 
backwards compatible in this case...but IMO we're heading towards the right 
direction. The above URL could be made to work by removing the FORM elements - 
as suggested by buster.  EVANGALISM please!
