I am not sure how to rectify this particular situation, but the top frame disapears when i switched my monitor to 800 x 600, it was also mentioned by the client :-(

Any solutions for me today?

oh yeah and while I am here the bottom navigation with the (oppertunities, Employees, Advertising, Travel Agents Only and Contact Us) seems to jump out of its containment area :-) the big file card itself... you know when someone holds down the alt key and uses the wheel to resize the tez=xt from med to larger it gets too big, is there also a way to stop this from jumping all over?

Hmmm...

This is kind of why you should stay away from Frames.  The site design would seem to lend itself a little more to an IFrame (floating frame) within a table if you wanted to try that (that's the only option I can see to change the structure without redesigning the whole thing, but still not really ideal).

There's no "proper" way to stop people from resizing their text - that functionality needs to be there for those with poor sight.  You could use graphics instead, or put that text in layers.

The top frame disappearing is because the frames are too big for the page.  on 800X600 you only really have about 440 pixels to play with on height - your total is 546 before the star gets involved - the main box is too big for the screen and doesn't show the bottom of that.

It seems like some redesigning is necessary.  Unless you want to put one of those "Best viewed in 1024X768 & above" things at the bottom (or top, as people can't see the bottom) and have a help page explaining about the font size, but that's not realistic.

Sorry that there's no quick fix.

Thank you pepsichris,
Why I didn't talk the client out of frames... who knows, maybe I wanted a challenge hehe, I changed the mid frame and resized a few things and repostioned a few others then checked back at 800 x 600 rez, it looks acceptable now, err I mean great! :-) Now I have to convince then to let me change their current pages that link...
