Please visit www.productlist.com and the index is a FrameSet that displays correctly.  The problem is I
would like the blue background files to be contigous and not have a gap between each side.  what code do I need to
insert to eliminate this gap ?  Do you need the index.htm
in order to debug ?

add the  

FRAMEBORDER="0"

tag in your frameset, maybe that helps ?
if you do have that tag in it, then something else is wrong, post your frameset code then.

Here's the code before seeing your solution, my code does not use a border ="0" the "0" is a "no" and shall implement it to see if that may help here's the file:

////////////////////////////////////<frameset cols="2%,*,2%">
  <frame src="color_blue.htm" name="Left" marginwidth="no" marginheight="no"
  frameborder="no" border="no" scrolling="NO" noresize="no">
  <frameset rows="3%,15%,*,18%,3%">
    <frame src="color_blue.htm" name="Top" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"
    border="no" scrolling="NO" noresize="no">
    <frame src="index_header_main.htm" name="Header" marginwidth="none" marginheight="none"
    frameborder="none" border="none" scrolling="no">
    <frame src="toc_index_i.htm" name="Center" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"
    frameborder="0" border="no" noresize="no" scrolling="YES" target="center">
    <frame src="index_footer.htm" name="Footer" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"
    frameborder="0" border="no" noresize="no" scrolling="YES" target="center">
    <frame src="color_blue.htm" name="bottom" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"
    border="no" scrolling="NO" noresize="no">
  </frameset>
  <frame src="color_blue.htm" name="Right" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"
  border="no" scrolling="NO" noresize="no">
  <noframes>
  <body>

frame border isn't your problem.  It is framemargin that caused it.

This is excellent code and a brillant job well done for Microsoft IE, but I implemented the solution and now look at www.productlist.com WITH netscape's Navigator, its an "aligator" the gaps are larger than they were before.  Can I use some sort of ASP for dual compatibility...

Sincerely,

webmaster

OK Optical.  If you use the following source as your index, everything should be set.  I tested it in netscape and there were no borders.  Cut and paste:

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>The ProductList Network</TITLE>
<META content=text/html;charset=iso-8859-1 http-equiv=content-type>
<META content="MSHTML 5.00.2614.3401" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>

<frameset framespacing="0" border="false" cols="2%,*,2%" frameborder="0">
  <frame name="contents" target="Left" src="The ProductList Network_files/color_blue.html"    scrolling="no">
  <frameset rows="3%,12%,7%,*,18%,4%">
    <frame name="Top" src="The ProductList Network_files/color_blue.html" scrolling="no">
    <frame name="Header" src="The ProductList Network_files/index_header_main.html"      scrolling="no">
    <frame name="Selector" src="The ProductList Network_files/header_selector.html"      target="Center">
    <frame name="Center" src="The ProductList Network_files/toc_index.html"
     target="Center">
    <frame name="Footer" src="The ProductList Network_files/index_footer.html"      target="Center">
    <frame name="Bottom" src="The ProductList Network_files/color_blue.html" scrolling="no">
  </frameset>
  <frame name="Right" src="The ProductList Network_files/color_blue.html" scrolling="no">
  <noframes>
  <body>
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
  </body>
  </noframes>
</frameset>
</html>

It seems as if there was just too much info earlier.  If this doesn't work for you, just let me know.

just be sure to double check the scrolling pages.  If you want scrolling, then no reference needs to be made to it.  If you don't want scrolling, then insert scrolling="no" into the frame tag.

Still a problem when viewed by netscape, frameborders.
www.productlist.com and your solution using IE is great.  Please visit site.

Hi, optical,

After viewing the site on both browsers, I can see the difference.  But what I believe needs to be done to get rid of the borders is to put the borders code in the frameset tag.  Try thet first.  I checked out the scripting in the site and there is no reference to borders or margins in the frameset tag.  The code I posted above on 7/16/99 came out good on both IE and netscape.
