Spacing differences with frames.

Im running to spacing differences between IE and Navigator when using frames.   If someone could visit www.chilcote.com/lti/ and have a look, and then relay to me what is necessary to make the Navigator3/4 version look like the IE4 version, Id appreciate it.

Include all frame border margin and what not information for both browser type.  some of them are different for each browser.

it might be repetitive, but it does the trick.

go look at the reference for both browser.

for ie, www.microsoft.com/workshop, HTML/DHTML/CSS, HTML Reference, FRAME

foe netscape: developer.netscape.com , documentation, html, ... FRAME

Took a look, and as far as I can tell, things should be showing up exactly the same under IE and Navigator.   Someone please have a look at the source and help me figure out whats going on.    Once again, everything shows up fine under IE4, but not correctly under Nav3 or Nav4.
maybe it helps putting


in each <FRAME> tag...

No Change....still getting white gaps between the frames.
You should include FRAMEBORDER=0 and FRAMEBORDER=no in each FRAME tag.
The first is for IE, the second for NS.
This is your lucky day :)

I just remember I coded some frame sometimes ago (I stay away from frame as much as I could) and it works on N3, IE4, and N4, no frame border whatsoever..

here is the code.
change as needed:

<frameset cols="150,*" frameborder=0 framespacing=0 border=0 bordercolor=maroon>
      <frame name=Calendar src="frmcalendar.asp" bordercolor=maroon frameborder=0
       marginheight=0 marginwidth=0>
      <frameset rows="100,*" frameborder=1 framespacing=0 border=0 bordercolor=maroon>
      <frame name=Events src="frmevents.asp" bordercolor=maroon frameborder=0
       marginheight=0 marginwidth=0>
      <frame name=Detail src="frmdetail.asp" bordercolor=maroon frameborder=0
       marginheight=0 marginwidth=0>

See bordercolor tag and match it to the neighboring frame content (all my html background for that particular one is maroon).
