Netscape Frame Border

Hi,
If you go the the URL www.netpresence.co.uk/sterling, I cant seem to get the top frame to stick at a certain pixel height in Netscape (4.6). It should be stuck at 78 pixels, but as you can see it overlaps the text image in Netscape. This works fine in Explorer 5. Please help, thanks.

That's cause a Netscape bug. This is due Netscape works with percent sizes instead of pixel sizes. I hope one day Netscape solve this proble, but you dont't have any solutions :(

Yes, like Xabi mentions, it's a NS bug, but you may solve it :

I see that you're using seperate pictures. The lefttop picture, which represents the top of the letters "Sterling" must be that way, that the top of the letters are gone. So "sterling_logo_bot.gif" must contain all the letters. This way it camouflages the bug. It's a possible solution, and I think the most suitable one. If someone else has another...well, I'm curious :)

Here goes another solution:

why don't you make the frames in other way like this:

 +---+----------+
 |   |          |
 |   +----------+
 |   |          |
 |   |          |
 |   |          |
 |   |          |
 +---+----------+

This will avoid your problem

the Netscape-problem with frames that need exact pixel sizes is a bug you can't escape from, regardless of whether you split the frames vertically or horisontally.  in your case it looks the alternative layout suggested by xabi will fix the problem though, since the whole left part will be one frame.

the key is to design in such a way that you're not relying on frames having exact pixel sizes, because you will never get that.
