When we create frames in Dreamweaver it by default adds the noresize option.

The problem is the way IE understands the cordinates netscape doesn't support that.
Even we specifies the height & width it doesn't understand it.

any other suggestions please
thanx

Use the example that anandnerkar posted -- it works perfectly fine.

The problem is the Dreamweaver writes *BAD HTML CODE*!  Netscape Navigator supports HTML according to the standards set forth by W3C (http://www.w3c.com).  IE supports only a partial set of these standards, as does Dreamweaver.

Frankly, I wouldn't use DW to make framesets -- it's very limiting. THere are tons of options you can't even get to, and it requires you to nest frames when you might not need to.

Framesets are pretty simple once you understand the construction, and if you write your own you can do almost anything you want -- not that you SHOULD, but you CAN. ;-)

Seems to me like this doesn't really answer the original question.

Take the example code kindly submitted by anandnerkar, add a further frame and open it in a navigator-flavour browser.
(IE behaves better it has to be said)
Now shrink the browser window down and hey presto - the frames go all squishy.

I know frames are generally frowned on but they can make the html learning curve a little less steep.
So has anyone a solution to this Navigator niggle?
