Not quite sure what you are trying to ask. When you say "frame" are you referring to an imbedded iFrame? or did you simply want a hole looking image of an ellipse right in the centre.

please look at this image and let me know if it resembles at all what you mean.

Since youre new to web design, it might be worth noting that you dont want to use FrontPage. It's a code nightmare and all but the simplest pages will be hampered by compatibility problems with any browser other than IE. I'd suggest Dreamweaver if you want a better editor.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks Weed, but I'm looking for easy to learn, I'm not a designer.

You will have to go into the "HTML" tab delete everything that is there, and paste this code:

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>Sarinana.net</title>
<base target="_self">
</head>

<body background="images/sarinana.gif">
<table border="1" width="100%" height="100%">
  <tr>
    <td width="100%">
      <p align="center"><img border="0" src="http://elpresidente01.free.fr/photos/convention%20pinceau%20a%20sec%20ellipse.gif" width="320" height="240"></td>
  </tr>
</table>
<DIV style="position:absolute;top:18;left:15;">
<p align="center"><!--webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan --><form name="AutoListBox">
<p><select name="ListBoxURL" size="1" language="javascript" onchange="gotoLink(this.form);">
   <option value="http://www.sarinana.net/family/main.htm">Enter web site</option>
   <option value="http://mail.sarinana.net">Members check e-mail</option>
   <option selected>>Start here...</option>
</select></p>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function gotoLink(form) {
   var OptionIndex=form.ListBoxURL.selectedIndex;
   parent.location = form.ListBoxURL.options[OptionIndex].value;}
//-->
</script>
</form><!--webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->

While you're messing with Frontpage, you might want to consider weed's advice and at least check out Dreamweaver. As for being a beginner needing something easy to use, I started with Dreamweaver. Open Dreamweaver and check out the lessons and tutorials in the Help menu. Far superior to anything Frontpage has to offer in terms of being a self-contained learning / productivity tool. I'm almost willing to bet that after just a few lessons, your eyes will see Frontpage quite a bit differently.
For my clients who insist on using Frontpage (so they can edit pages, and take advantage of it being basically a word processor for the web) I usually build the pages in Dreamweaver and publish with Frontpage.
