Hello,
I am trying to help a friend with his website.

There is a lot of extra spacing between frames in firefox, but the exact same page loads in IE perfectly.
Please advise.

Lot of people think it is a problem with Firefox because IE "seems" to be parsing page correctly. It's rarely the case as Firefox is a lot closer to being fully CSS 2.1 compliant than IE.

Some HTML coding errors that may be causing the problem with cross-browser compatibility for you -

HTML Errors

BTW, the site is not using frames, but table tags. Those went out in the late 1990s and should NOT BE USED for the doctype (XHTML 1.0) being used unless the content is tabular data. Then tables can be used.

Might want to read Images, Tables, and Mysterious Gaps by Mozilla.

i agree with Major Payne, tables should not be used for web page layout as they cause loads of problems with compatibility.

DIV tags are a better way of setting out a web page and offer different types of positioning so you can get it looking exactly how you want. and once you get used to them its a much easier way of designing.

www.w3schools.com is a good site to learn new techniques.

if you want to try and test your current site... validator.w3.org is a site that will make sure you page meets the current web standards and will show you how to change and problems within the code.

Hope this helps **Luke**
