Hi, I am completely aware that Framesets are an outdated way of designing these days (I don't have time to redesign the site now), but I have a question:.

Is there a way I can have a "Please wait.. Loading.." message of some sort on the "contents.html" frameset? It takes a while to load..



<html>

<head>

</head>

<frameset rows="130,*" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0">
<frame name="banner" scrolling="no" noresize target="contents" src="title.html">
<frameset cols="523,493">
<frame name="contents" target="main" src="contents.html" scrolling="auto">
<frame name="main" src="letters.html" scrolling="auto">
</frameset>
<noframes>
<body>

<p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>

</body>
</noframes>
</frameset>

</html>


Thanks so much.

Change to

<frame name="contents" target="main" src="preload.html" scrolling="auto">

And then have your "preload.html" page look like this:


<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=contents.html" />
</head>
<body>
<h2>Please wait...</h2>
</body>
</html>

Oh, and if you can find a browser that doesn't support frames, still working and still active on somebody's machine, let us all know!
