Ah yes - that was the problem I listed in my earlier email. I tried with Lynx
and got the same message. The site does need a no-frames text only alternative
to cater for users with browsers that don't support frames and JAVA etc.

The reason I asked is because it seems as though the site has moved to another
server - hence the reason WAVE could not analyse it. I get this message when I
try to run WAVE: 

Welcome to the Official Site
of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games
The page you have requested either is temporarily unavailable, outdated, or no
longer exists on our servers. We apologize for
the inconvenience. This page will refresh in 15 seconds to the
www.saltlake2002.com home page.

But if I try to run WAVE at that URL I go around in circles - ie I get the same
message again and am redirected back to itself. BIZARRE!!!!!!
