Hi experts,

I am trying to help a guy fix up an incomplete site, other coder quit. I
have a question about how the site narrows the main page in a frame view.
The page is formatted to have large margins of blank (but colored) margins
and is centered. I am using a 17" monitor at high res, so I figure it's like
that so lesser resolutions can see the entire thing at once. Here is the
frameset index file:

/*entire index.htm file */

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Frameset//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Computer Parts</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1458" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>
<FRAMESET border=0 frameSpacing=0 rows=5000,* frameBorder=0>
<FRAME src="cpsv1.htm">
<FRAME src="about:blank"></FRAMESET></HTML>

*/ top part of cpsv1 */

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<LINK href="cps.css" type=text/css rel=stylesheet>

Most of the rest of the code is tables that set up top and lefthand menus.
But these tables have width=100% and yet are NOT 100% of the screen. Why not
is my q? The middle of the page is blank for new items etc.

The site may or may not be up right now:

Yes, we saw your question the first time you asked it, and when you
multi-posted it to ciwah as well.

I could not see it, something must've been wrong on my end. Sorry. It's not
like it was huge waste of bandwidhth.

Re: frames question

Ok, thanks all. Sorry for the troubles. The code seems such a mess. Hiding
the URL numbers seems like a good hint. And table size 770 is probably the
I really should start from scratch? ok, maybe.
