Frame's frameborder not working...

Hi all,

I've got a site with frames (one frame on the left for navigation and one on the right for content). My problem is that there's a gray line seperating the two frames even though I have frameborder="0" (for Netscape) and frameborder="no" (for Explorer). Any help on how to remove the bar would be appreciated: Here's the current html site that creates the frames:

<html>
<head><title>My Title here</title></head>
<frameset cols="25%,*" frameborder="no" frameborder="0">
   <frame name="content" src="./contents.htm" noresize marginheight=0 marginwidth=0>
   <frame name="material" src="./mission.htm" noresize>
</frameset>
</html>

If you require a sample, take a look at www.tsimontana.com and select Graphics. Then you'll see the gray bar seperating the frames.

You need to add to that the frame spacing.  IE
<frameset cols="25%,*" framespacing="0" frameborder="0" >

Sorry, that solution only appears to work properly in MSIE.

OK, now it seems to be working OK.  Take a look at

Sorry about the awful colors!

I think the key is border="false", so you need
<frameset framespacing="0" frameborder="0" border="false" cols="121,*">

The "official" parameter for Netscape is: BORDER=NO

Christian may be right on this one.  I'm just using what FrontPage dumped in.  Netscape seems to like it OK, though.

Well, I wonder why FrontPage is NN-compatible anyway... :-)  (just think of MARQUEE)

Bigelos,
Thanks for the info.

Christian Wenz,
Thanks for your contributions as well.

I used the border="false" and it seems to work with both netscape and explorer.

Thanks again.
