Dear Mr. Hunt,

Please note that the information btween <HEAD> and </HEAD> were changed.
My original Index.htm file is on the server but the website browser takes the following information:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3c.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/frameset.dtd">
<!-- saved from url=(0029)http://www.just-offshore.com/ -->
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>just-offshore.com</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<FRAMESET rows=*>
<FRAME src="just-offshore_com_pliki/www.just-offshore.htm" 
frameBorder=0>
<NOFRAMES>
<a href="http://offshore.nazwa.pl/www.just-offshore.com">http://offshore.nazwa.pl/www.just-offshore.com</a>
</NOFRAMES></FRAMESET></HTML>

As you see this is not what I prepared. Of course the body is the same because there is the information about the main page: http://offshore.nazwa..pl/www.just-offshore.com

You can simply check this when you visit the website and choose "Save as....". Please do it and you will see that the main page has the information specified above. You will also have the folder with my files and my original Index file in. As you will notice my information in Meta tags are quite different, e.g. title, etc.

I spend a lot of time trying to do somethig with it. I changed the names of the folders, reinstalation, etc. but I could not fix it.

I kindly ask you check this out and help me. Apart of that someone (probably one of my firends, because company does not trade yet) did it by accident to check the website. I would like to not have such surprise in the future.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

Kind regards,
