Frame problems / res change / NS

Hi ! I've problems with my frameset:
If you change the screen resolution to 800x600 or lower (in IE) the site is shown wrong. NS shows the site completely wrong. Do you know how I can make the site showing right @ 800x600 in IE and what I have to change to make the site showing right in NS ?


I wish a happy new year !

I would suggest you to use percentage % as width size for the frames instead of fixed pixel size something like this <FRAMESET ROWS="10%,20%,15%,*" BORDER="0" FRAMEBORDER="no">. using % width and height will allow the frameset page to automatically adjust its size according to the current resolution of the screen

ok, but wouldn't then my graphics have the wrong size (e.g. the borders of the text window) ???

I mean the graphics size (backgrouds) won't change with the frame size...

Do you know if/how I can calcuate the new frameset for NS ?

if you're relying on prefect pixel-sized frames you won't get it.  Netscape will snap the frames to a (yet unknown) value depending on the size of the browser window and the resolution you're running.  yes, it's a PITA.

you'll either have to live with it, or work your way around it (using tables perhaps).
