    Frame border too high in Internet Explorer

    drennan Level 1
      I've built a website with the navigation in the top frame and a scrollable lower frame. I've got a 20 pixel border (gif) around the nav buttons which matches up with the 20 pixel border around the content in the bottom frame. It previews fine in safari and firefox but IE moves the the frame border up by about 5 pixels which messes up the alignment. If i adjust it to fit in IE, I get a 5 pixel gap in safari and firefox. Anyone know why IE does this and how to fix it? thanks.

          Why are you using frames?

          Why have you not posted a link to your page, so we can see the code?

            i'm using frames because i'm unaware of another way to split the screen. Since they are an option in dreamweaver i presumed they are ok to use. I haven't pasted a link because my content contains sensitive data.

              Frames are rarely the optimal choice for your layout, since there are so
              many compromises implicit in your selection. But without getting a look at
              your code, nobody can help you. Sorry.

                just wondered if it was a known problem and if there was a quick fix. I'll remove the content and post an empty version of the website when i've got time. thanks
