    IE 6 Problem

    I have a big problem and I was wondering if any of you have had the same thing.

    I have done a web site for a Football (soccer) League I'm involved with. I did this with a mixture of Dreamweaver and Flash and everything seemed to be okay. Then yesterday I went onto the site from work and the left hand frame and the main frame are filled with rubbish text.
    I did some further research and discovered that this was the case for all of the PC within my company that were running Windows 98 and IE 6. I then viewed the page in N6.1 & 7 and it was fine, I also viewed the page in IE5 and it was okay in that as well. I then went home last night and viewed it in IE6 running on Windows XP and it was fine then also.
    Here's a link for you to see what I mean

    If your not running IE6 on windows 98 here's a link to a screen capture

    Is this something I've done or is it IE6?

    It's probably not this (but u never know ...

    your index file that specifies your frames has a closing body tag which should be removed.

    Don't know if that helps any?

    I think you missed the open body tag?

    <noframes><body>

    </body></noframes>

    I did the same when I look at it until i got it into Dreamweaver.

    Thanks anyway.

    Anymore ideas?

    Could it be the way its been uploaded?

    Maybe this is of some help.
    When you're using CSS classes, don't use TWO dots:

    ..bodytext {}
    ..header1 {}
    ..formtxt {}
    ..bullettxt {}

    But one:

    .bodytext {}
    .header1 {}
    .formtxt {}
    .bullettxt {}


    And I never heard of rows and cols in one frameset tag:

    <frameset rows="153,*" cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
    <frame src="mk_header.htm" name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize >
    <frameset rows="*" cols="148,*" framespacing="0" frameborder="NO" border="0">
    <frame src="mk_nav.htm" name="leftFrame" scrolling="auto" noresize>
    <frame src="mk_main.htm" name="mainFrame">
    </frameset>
    </frameset>

    This is better, I guess:

    <frameset rows="153,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
    <frame src="mk_header.htm" name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize >
    <frameset cols="148,*" framespacing="0" frameborder="NO" border="0">
    <frame src="mk_nav.htm" name="leftFrame" scrolling="auto" noresize>
    <frame src="mk_main.htm" name="mainFrame">
    </frameset>
    </frameset>

    I'll be honest, Dreamweaver MX did all of that.

    I have no idea what it means by col or rows for frames. Could someone explain please?
    Why 1 dot and not 2 in the CSS?

    Do you think that this could be the problem?

    Thanks for the reply
