Frames: remove outer borders in IE; background transparency

Here's a sample frameset:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">
<title>Sample frameset</title>
<frameset rows="50%,50%">
<frame src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4017788/Labs/frame_a.html">
<frame src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4017788/Labs/frame_a.html">

a) How to remove the frames outer borders (NOT the separator resizing border between the frames) that appear in IE?
b) How to set the frames background to transparent?
c) If there aren't straightforward solutions to the above issues, what's a good alternative to the frameset that provides a resizing handle/border? Any different approach?

Many thanks in advance!

This seems to be a quirk of prior versions of Internet Explorer. IE 9 doesn't do it anymore. I tried a few fixes without success: border:none in the CSS as well as 'border' and 'frameborder' attributes. I think you're stuck.
