I am having a problem with the following HTML code, which is part of a test suite: ---- <html> <head> <title>Frames and Iframes | Test 1</title> </head> <frameset cols="20%, *"> <frameset rows="100, 200, 300"> <frame longdesc="test_files/file1.html" /> <frame longdesc="../media/img/al-dayr_petra.jpg" /> <frame longdesc="does/not/exist" /> </frameset> <frame longdesc="test_files/file2.txt" /> <noframes> <p>this document contains frame test files, some of which do not really exist at all. </p> </noframes> </frameset> </html> ----- I am using the following perl code to load/process the HTML: ----- #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTML::TreeBuilder; use HTTP::Request; use LWP::UserAgent; my $source_URI = " . my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(agent => "BLURP"); my $response = $ua->get($source_URI); my ($tree, $psuccess); die "failed to fetch URI: $source_URI: $!\n" if not $response->is_success; eval { $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new; $tree->no_space_compacting(1); $tree->ignore_unknown(0); $tree->ignore_ignorable_whitespace(0); $tree->p_strict(1); $tree->store_comments(1); $tree->store_pis(1); $psuccess = $tree->parse($response->content); $tree->eof(); $tree->elementify; }; die "Parse failed: $!" if not $psuccess; print ($tree->as_HTML('', ' ')); exit 0 ----- The problem is that the output of as_HTML() contains the following snippet (only relevant part shown): ----- <noframes> <body> <p>this document contains frame test files, some of which do not really exist at all. </body> ----- It opens an implicit body tag when I think it should not. The html validates on the W3C validator (if I add the FRAMESET doctype at the top, which makes no difference to the parsing). Am I missing something? Johannes

Hi, sorry for the long delay, I'm the new maintainer so I'm going over all the old tickets. I believe it's compulsory in XHTML when using frameset to have a body in the noframes section, we wouldn't be able to make a valid as_XML export without adding the body at parse time, and since it's still optional in the non XHTML spec, it seems safer to leave it on. Cheers, Jeff.
