This is using elinks configured with --without-gpm --without-lua --wi
thout-guile --without-x and either with or without openssl support,
and no preferences or settings changes. Also happens in 0.4.2
configured the same way. Here's a test case:

      <frameset cols="*">   <!-- also 'rows' instead of 'cols'-->
        <frame src="page.html">  <!-- any dinky html file -->
        <frame src="page.html">


For me, this renders incorrectly, but renders correctly if the
cols="*" attribute is removed from the <frameset>. If the missing
<body></body> is added around the <frameset></frameset>, it renders
incorrectly even if the cols attribute is removed.
