    Hi,

    I'm probably going to design a site for someone I know soon, and I think that I would like to use frames with it...however I tend not to like the way they look....

    HOWEVER...

    I like the sorts of frames like the one found on this site...
    http://www.purebaseball.com

    As you'll notice, there's no little gray "bar" seperating the frame from the page...it's just there...I'm having trouble describing what I mean...

    Anyway, if anyone has any idea what I mean/how to do it...please reply, it would be greatly appreciated.

    It's actually really simple. In your "frameset" add this:

    frameborder="0" framespacing="0"

    This will take away that little gray "bar".
    It will keep the frames close together and thus gives you a more professional look.

    I recently discovered a solution to the frame table problem and the answer is to place the marginwidth marginheight border and all those attributes in the frameset tag itself.

    Example : <frameset cols="142,480,*" frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="no" border="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="No" frameborder="0">

    This will take out the space in Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x+.

    I have a site thats in frames, and it has worked out quite well.

    The site was created for a specific purpose and the frames have helped make it a success.

    Otherwise frames can and do kill a web site.

    A properly laid out and designed frames site can do quite well... personally I prefer tables.
