The code below is supposed to show a three framed web page, but when I look at in my browser only the top frame is displayed.....

What am I doing wrong?

Regards,

Matt.

<html>
<head>
<title>index</title>
</head>
<frameset rows="108,559*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" cols="*">
<frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" src="header.html" >
<frameset rows="433*,123" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" cols="*">
<frame name="mainFrame" src="index_main1.html">
<frame name="bottomFrame" scrolling="NO" src="base.html">
</frameset>
</frameset>
<noframes><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
</body></noframes>
</html>

You don't need the second frameset tag. All you need is
frameset rows="108,559,*" frameborder="no" border="0" framespacing="0"

Only ONE frameset tag, you're not specifying columns so you don't need that. You do need the 3 frame names. The frameset tag sets up three frames -- one 108, one 559, and one the rest of the window -- which, for most people, is going to be NOTHING because your numbers are WAY too big. Hardly anybody has a browser window 700+ pixels DEEP -- wide, maybe, but not DEEP.

I'd set the top frame size, the BOTTOM frame size, and let the center (which I'm assuming is the content) be the rest of the window height.

And you certainly don't need that second frameset tag.

Should do the trick (just to support webwoman...)
