    Problem with Website when scrolling down in IE6

    ojorge
      I just created a website using Dreamweaver 8 which used a left and top frame. All the links in the nav bar in the left frame open up in the main frame.

      Everything works fine in Firefox and IE7, but in IE6, all the pages were opening up on top of one another, making the page unreadable. Also, when scrolling down a single page, all the text would blur into one another, again ruining the page.

      The website is www.omarjorge.com. You can see the scrolling problem by just scrolling down the main page. When I open the file from the mainframe individually it doesn't have this problem.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

          Sorry - I scrolled down in IE6 and didn't see your problem.

          Also, why are you using such an antique method as frames for this site? The
          reason for using or not using frames should be based on a) your site's
          needs, and b) your willingness to accept the potential problems that frames
          can create for you as developer and maintainer of the site and for your
          visitors as casual users of the site.

          I am down on frames because I believe that they create many more problems
          than they solve.
          Judging from the posts here, and the kinds of problems that are described,
          the kind of person most likely to elect to use frames is also the kind of
          person most likely ill-prepared fo solve the ensuing problems when they
          arise. If you feel a) that you understand the problems and b) that you are
          prepared to handle them when they occur, and c) that you have a need to use
          frames, then by all means use them.

          As far as I know, the most comprehensive discussions of frames and their
          potential problems can be found on these two links -
