Hello,

I need the following:
Full screen broken into this:

divided into half Rows- 50%, 50% we will call main1(top half), main2(bottom half)

main2 will stay like this

main1 divided up into 3 cols 60%, 15%, 25% we will call these sub1, sub2 sub3.

I have no problems getting to this point. I need sub3 divided farther. Need it to be divided in 3 rows at 33%, 33%, 33%. I hope you can understand this. Thanks...

I has to add up to 100% or the browser will allocate the space on its own, and not all browsers will do it the same.

The best way is to use rows="33%, 33%, *"

However any design that needs that may frames to implement probably hs other problems that will create cross-browser inconsistencies anyway.

that's way to many frames...


what is the problem you are having?

you claim you have had no problem getting to a certain point.

post your code, and we can modify for you.  NO NEED for us to recode what you already have, right?

Bruno,

Changed layout of webpage, don't need that many frames now. I ended up doing this;

<FRAMESET ROWS="46%, 54%" BORDER="0">
<FRAMESET COLS="28, 20, 24, 28" frameborder="0" border="3" framespacing="0">
   <FRAME name="selections" SRC="selections.html" MARGINHEIGHT="2" MARGINWIDTH="10" scrolling=no>
   <FRAME SRC="count.asp" MARGINHEIGHT="5" MARGINWIDTH="20" scrolling=no>
   <FRAME SRC="subframe3.html" MARGINHEIGHT="10" MARGINWIDTH="5" scrolling=no>
   <FRAME SRC="pick.asp" MARGINHEIGHT="35" MARGINWIDTH="0" scrolling=no>
   </FRAMESET>  
   <FRAME name="viewrecords" SRC="viewrecords.asp" MARGINHEIGHT="0">

so you still need additional help, or you are all set now?

if you are all set, we didn't really help here, feel free to ask for a refund in CS (link on the left).

I agree with Cd&'s comment above however, the last value in your frameset should always be "*"
