    HTML nooblet here.

    I'm trying to make a page with a 105 tall row on the top then a 120 wide collumn on the left for navigating and a have the body take up the rest of the space. And this code works great for doing that:

    <frameset framespacing="0" border="0" rows="105,*" frameborder="0">
    <frame name="top" scrolling="no" noresize src="top.html">
    <frameset cols="120,*">
    <frame name="nav" scrolling="no" noresize src="mainnav.html">
    <frame name="body" noresize src="mainbody.html"

    </frameset>

    the kicker is that I would like a 20 high row on the very bottom of the page but i can't figure out how to make it work

    any help for the noob?

    I'll third the no frames advice. Often you'll end up with links to the main body page, and the index and header frames won't show up, unless you put some javascript in there to force them to load.

    Well I've had no problems with frames (except for interopability - IE sucks) and I would say go right to it. Sometimes you can get a better looking page without frames, but they can make it much easier when it comes to updating something.
