Every once in awhile I go to a Google search and come across a listing which says that the site needs Frames, and that my browser does not support frames.
Hmmm... Win98se, 128MB Ram, I.E. 6.0

What gives??
Thanks.

tools/internet options/security/internet/custom settings

if you scroll down this box a bit you'll see a setting for 'launching in a Iframe'.....and options to disable,enable, prompt......

maybe you have it set to disable ?

pallidin that message you see is becuase most search engines use "spiders" to search the web site submitted to them for listing. spiders are software that will check out a website for links and other things that the search engine will use for ranking the site and listing it. these spiders don't support frames, and the web site designer puts a message so that if some one with an older browser (that doesn't support frames) goes there they will knowwhy the page isn't displayed properly. so the error message that you see on google is becuase the spider picked it up. your browser will support frames, so if you visit the site it will be displayed correctly.
To usm all of this up, that error message is for the spider, and not you
