) frameborder="0"

--> Microsoft syntax: show/do not show 3D border

     2) framespacing="0"
--> Microsoft Syntax: distance between frames (thus width of border in pixel)

     3) border="0">
--> Netscape syntax: width of border between frames.

So if you want borderless frames with both NN and IE, you have to use frameborder=0 framespacing=0 border=0

     <FRAME SRC="robmenu.htm" NAME="robmenu"...

     4) MARGINWIDTH=10
distance (in pixels) between the right (or left) border of the frame and the content of the frame ("how much is the frame content indented from left and right")

     5) MARGINHEIGHT=0
same, here distance between the top and bottom of the frame and its content

     6) NORESIZE
the user may not resize the frame with the mouse (cannot alter width and height)

     7) frameborder="0"
same as with frameset

     8)framespacing="0">
same as with frameset

if you have additional questions, please leave me a comment.

Then do I need to include the border=0 etc inside the frame src?

Is the full name border=0 or frameborder?

(1) usually, you don't have to include border=0 in the frame tag - but I always do that, maybe some alternative browser needs it.
(2) border = Microsoft syntax; frameborder = Netscape syntax, so you need both
(3) exactly, you just need NORESIZE

So it's safer to
<frameset frameborder (netscape) =0 broder (MIE) =0>
<frame frameborder=0 ... >

to be on the safe side...

exactly. to be on the _very_ safe side, do also include FRAMESPACING="0" in the <FRAMESET> tag

frameborder refers to the "3d border" of a frame in IE, whereas framespacing defines the distance between two frames (so there may be a distance between two frames in IE that doesn'T look like this bold 3d border line. border is NS-specific,
