    Hi. I have made a web http://www.goodrich.com.sg and I have the upper frame with it's company logo. My client claimed he cannot see the logo of the company but my machines and my friend's machines can view the logo. I hope someone can look into the web and tell me if you can see the company logo. I am using frames and the upper frame containing the logo is call topImg.html . If possible, can some of you visit the upper frame individually by going to http://www.goodrich.com.sg/topImg.html which links to the upper frame.

    Thanks alot.

    A lot to say here mate, but the crook of it is that your client is more than likely using Internet Explorer (IE) and you are using Firefox (FF).

    Your code has errors, and the topImg.html is displaying your header content at the bottom of the page in IE, and at the top in FF, thus you are able to see that content in one and not the other,

    You can see the results on this page: http://browsershots.org/http://www.goodrich.com.sg/topImg.html (give it a few minutes to load up the screenshots)

    The Reason: Lots, but probably because you set a height on the background element to 100%...

    Solution: Remove the background div, you don't need it, place your overall background image in the body of your CSS ie: body {background: #fff (background.jpg);}

    Further notes: Try and move all style elements to an external style sheet, and rip out the Frames, they cause more problems than solutions.

    Yeah ^
    Frames are great for photos but terrible for web sites... ;)
    Voodish is right- IE has a funny way of working with div height. Try setting the div height to 1% (I love Holly!)

    I decided to use frames because I don't need to re-render all the graphics (I am lazy) and plus I am not told specifically and my client isn't bothered so .... frames just fits all the situation (but not cure it perfectly though).

    To me re-doing the graphics would seem like a much easier way then frames. On 1024x768 resolution (which is still popular) some of the navigation buttons get covered up by the frame.

    I have changed the html for the background in the CSS but the backgound picture keeps repeating itself. How do I stretch it in one non repeating 'canvas' (This is the request of the client) ? I would change the frame when the client doesn't wants it.

    Sometimes you have to do what is right and educate your client as to the right way to do things. Otherwise someone else will and then he will expect you to go back and fix it all for free.

    But you should convince to client for remove frame from site. And make the search engine friendly site to get more traffic and increase the business from internet marketing.
