Hello,

Thanks so much to mark-b who helped us figure out a problem. (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/Q_20956005.html)

<FRAMESET ROWS="53,*" FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" MARGINWIDTH="0" BORDER="0">
 <FRAME SRC="banner.html" FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER=0 SCROLLING="NO" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0" NAME="BANNER">
 <FRAME SRC="chat.html" NAME="MAIN" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="YES" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0" BORDER=0>
</FRAMESET>
 Now we have two frames that sit on top of each other.  Both pages have a blue background.

Is there anyway to have a white margin around just the OUTER edges of the two frames, and not where the two frames meet?

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

Just add a little styling to the frame tags:

<FRAMESET ROWS="53,*" FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" MARGINWIDTH="0" BORDER="0">
 <FRAME SRC="banner.html" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0" NAME="BANNER" style="border:5px solid white;border-bottom:0px solid white">
 <FRAME SRC="chat.html" NAME="MAIN" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="YES" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0" style="border:5px solid white;border-top:0px solid white">
</FRAMESET>

Wait a minute.  I'm an idiot. There is an easier way. the frameset itself can be styled:

<FRAMESET ROWS="53,*" FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" MARGINWIDTH="0"
        style="border:5px solid white">
 <FRAME SRC="banner.html" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0" NAME="BANNER">
 <FRAME SRC="chat.html" NAME="MAIN" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="YES" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMESPACING="0">
</FRAMESET>
