What causes frames to view differently in IE than they do in Netscape?  For example, even with pixel sizing (cols="50,*"), it chops off in Netscape.  Why??????

It's a silly problem. Explorer leaves more space in left, right, top and bottom margins of the page than Netscape, so you should take this in count every time. You can't do anything. Keep testing the page in both navigators, and try also to check the page with Explorer 3.0 also (it sometimes do incredible changes to the page).

By the way, remember to include the frameborder and framespacing parameters in your frames setting:
Ex:
<FRAMESET ROWS="25,*" FRAMEBORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0" BORDER="0">
it helps a little sometimes.

Luck!

If anyone else has advice, check out:

and tell me how you'd fix this delima.  My client wants the grid background (else this wouldn't be a problem).  It views fine in IE, but not in Netscape.

What about to make a Fade efect in the right frame and leave the left with white or a dark background behind the menu image?

My client 99% wants that silly grid to work.  ugh!  So I'm going to have to make two versions I think... so even with all the framesetting set to "0" or "no", there is no way for the pages to use to the same code?
