I believe that frames are considered poor practice now and shouldn''t be used.

You can try something like this:

FRAMESET ROWS="88, *, 38" FRAMEBORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0
FRAME NAME="HEADER" SRC="...." NORESIZE SCROLLING=NO
FRAME NAME="BODY" SRC="..." NORESIZE
FRAME NAME="FOOTER" SRC="..." NORESIZE SCROLLING=NO
/FRAMESET

Anyway, keep in mind that it's not a good idea to use frames for a variety of reasons. e.g.

- Search engines doesn't like them.
- You reduce the visible area in the screen
etc

Also, disability programs tend to dislike frames. You can normally find a way to not use them, unless perhaps you have a HUGE menu file for some reason that you dont want to reload (but that would just be bad design anyways).
