Browser that Supports Frames While in HT

By regarchrm ·
I have been working in MS FrontPage Express to edit web pages in HTML format. Several pages that I have opened give me the message, "You must have a browser that supports frames to view this document". There are several colored images on the page,and double-clicking them gives the image properties.
My browser is IE 5.01, which I thought allowed for the viewing of frames in html. Is there a setting that I can enable to allow viewing of frames, or am going to have use another browser?

Browser that Supports Frames While in HT

You are right to think that IE 5.01 is capable of seeing frames - it IS. The pages that you are looking at are most likely the 'noframes.html'(or similar)pages that some people who design a frame based site (badly)link to in the <noframes> tags of their frameset document.

However, if you want to check whether you really aren't seeing the frameset then when you have opened the page in IE, go to the 'View' menu and select the 'Source' option. If you see a frameset and <noframes> tags containing;

"You must have a browser that supports frames to view this document"

then you have somehow got hold of a copy of IE 5.01 that doesn't support frames.
