My Popup menu only shows on standalone html Page

Hi Guys,

Please Help. I created a nav bar with popup menu in Fireworks MX. It works fine until I put the html into a frameset and then the popup does not appear any more.

Here is the frameset code.

<title>Sketched News </title>
<meta http-equiv=“Content-Type” content=“text/html; charset=iso-8859-1”>

<frameset rows=“18,82” frameborder=“NO” border=“0” framespacing=“0”>
<frame src=“topsindex.html” name=“topFrame” scrolling=“NO” BORDER=“0” noresize>
<frame src=“holdsindex.html” name=“mainFrame” scrolling=“No” BORDER=“0” noresize >



And Here is a part of the nav bar code.

<area shape=“poly” coords=“781,99,878,99,880,100,881,103,881,119,880,122,878,123,781,123,779,122,778,119,778,103,779,100,781,99” href=“javascript:void(0)” onclick=“parent.frames[‘mainFrame’].location.href=‘tvindex.html’” title=“MSNBC News Live TV” alt=“MSNBC News Live TV” onMouseOut=“MM_startTimeout();” onMouseOver=“MM_showMenu(window.mm_menu_0216223415_0,828,17,null,‘topsindex’);” >

Please tell me what I am doing wrong…


an <area> tag defines an area inside an imagemap. I see no imagemaps here. If your image that’s supposed to be using the imagemap is inside topsindex.html or holdsindex.html, then your area tag needs to be inside that file, not your frameset file…

Thanks, but I solved the problem.

In reference to your comment, I only posted a part of the code “topsindex.html”.

The solution in this case was to remove the first line of code from my frameset html file.

" <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN” “”> "

I don’t know why, but afterwards it worked. Maybe someone can explain this to me?I have been teaching myself and there are still many things that I don’t understand.

Thank Again.
