Hi Tom, this is one hassle I have had with Netscape for years, and that is 
the interpretation of the WIDTH= parameter. While MSIE interprets it as 
the MAXIMUM width, Netscape continue to interpret it as the MINIMUM 
width, particularly in TABLES.

I suppose with your frames problem it could be attributed to a difference in 

However, my private site is designed for 4.x series browsers. Go have a 
look at http://users.iafrica.com/i/id/idsamson/index.html and let me know 
what your browser does with my frames.

Sorry I can't answer your question more specifically.
