Simple frameset help needed in Dreamweaver...!!

In Dreamweaver 8 I'm building a website using multiple frames, something I always stayed away from for no good reason, but can't figure this out:

When I create a multiple-frame main page in Dreamweaver and everything goes smoothly... all the frames are editable and dimensions moveable.

But suddenly the border between all the frames suddently lose the ability to be moved. When I put my cursor over a border it has lost the ability to "two-way arrow". Am I somehow overwriting part of the main frameset to stop the borders from being edited?

Attached is a working version of my main frameset to let everyone see what I'm trying to do. Thanks for any insight

yuhs,

If I remember correctly, noresize doesn't have any attributes.  That is - it's just noresize.

Second, if you use noresize, you won't be able to resize the frame.  Typically any child frames you have within the parent frame will inherit the noresize attribute from the parent frame.
