Hi, I'm trying to get the sizing right on my frames, basically I have this as front page:

So basically 3 rows, where the middle is split into 2 parts.
The html page that gets loaded in the middle right frame may be any size.
I don't want to put scrollabrs on this frame, but rather on the whole front page if necessary,
But I can't seem to get it right, can anyone help?

Can I ask why are you using frames in this day in age? Frames have more problems than benefits.

Don't have a solution since I have not worked with frames since 99.

Ok , so is the alternative using <DIV> ?

And what would be the best way to load in certain pages after a mouse click?

CSS layouts replaced frames long ago. Ajax and DOM manipulation allow you to update portions of the page pretty easily (especially if using jQuery).

Full-page reloads can still use links and form submissions, or can be controlled under script control.
