I now have this:

<frameset rows="90, 150, *" frameborder="0" border="0" framespacing="0">
  			<frame name="topFrame" src="TopFrame.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
	<frameset cols="50, 250,*" frameborder="0" border="0" framespacing="0">
  			<frame name="space1" src="Space_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
  			<frame name="space3" src="Space_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
			<frame name="indicators" src="Tools_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
	<frameset cols="50, 250,*" frameborder="0" border="0" framespacing="0">
		<frame name="space2" src="Space_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
		<frame name="menu" src="Menu_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>
		<frame name="content" src="Content_1.html" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" noresize>

How ever, I want to have things positioned in about the same way, but with div and sectors etc, more html5:ish I guess. Could you help me get up the starting structure looking about like the html above?

It would help if we can see an image of what your page looks like or post a link to your page.

In short your mark up would look something like below if you want to use div's.  You would add some css for the left and right.
<div id="wrapper">
     <div id="header">
             This is my page title
    <div id="main">
           <div id="left">I am divided in two by css mark up. This is my left.  You can use the css float:left and then ad margin-right to put some space between both sides</div>
          <div id="right">I am divided in two by css mark up. This is my right</div>
  <div id="footer">I am the bottom</div>

The fact that you are using framesets and sourcing in cintent will mean re-structuring to generate everything as a single page.  That is generally best accomplished with page generation from the server side.

So, are the pages static markup, or do you have server side scripting/include capabilities to make things easier?

We will almost certainly need a link to get this done.
