Amaya  doesn't render framesets - it gives links to each of the frames so you
can open them in seperate windows if you like.

It will render noframes content (which you should always include in frames
for systems that don't crawl framesets). So my suggestion is to add

<noframes>
<body>
 [[some welcome message and enough links to get around the website without
   relying on frames]]
</body>
</noframes>

As far as I know Amaya doesn't plan to do full frameset rendering any time
soon. Although it would be handy if it could read the size attributes from a
frameset and apply those in opening a new window for a frame.

cheers
