Netcape shutters on my web site

Netscape shutters on my web site, its like it redraws the screen several times very rapidly.  How do I stop it from doing this?  Its not my machine; several of my friends have the same complaint. The address is:

I thought it had something to do with java script, but its still there when its turned off.  I could be something with the frames.  Not as bad when you view the document without the frames. To try it goto:

You can disable Javascript under Options/Network_Preferences, Languages tab - and the page still causes "shudders" - so this elimintes JS as a possible cause.

The only glaring oddity I can see in the HTML code is that the <NOFRAMES> content is placed inside the <FRAMESET> tags (which is incorrect - NOFRAMES should be placed outside the FRAMESET tags - genenrally, directly following them.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you may need to repost this question to the Web Authoring area, where folks with a broader array of knowledge can have a crack at it - it may be HTML, or something to do with included files - but one thing is sure at this point ...

The script isn't the problem.

I also tried moving the noframes outside of the frameset; no change.

Just looked at it again - made a copy to my drive and did some trial-and-error.  Fopund the source of your problems ...

... it's the midi file.  Delete it, and the "shuddering" stops.

The best solution: get rid of the background music.  Users will thank you.

Alternative Solution: resample the audio file - while background "music' is always annoying, I've never seen it cause this kind of problem before - so there must be a problem with the file itself.
