All the pages has been created with Ulead Photo Impact8. I have the source code if you wish. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Clic on Brothers 2003 banner 2. 3. Actual Results: You reach a blank page instead of the pictures. Expected Results: To show thumb pictures.
In the first testcase (which just throws away the outermost FRAMESET since it doesn't affect the display whether it's there or not), it looks to me like you've assigned 100% of the width of the outer FRAMESET to the "null" frame. So the frame with content has nowhere to render. The second testcase changes the outer FRAMESET to 0, * for width. Now the content renders. This is not a Firebird-specific bug, as Mozilla gives the same rendering. ->Layout/Frames, though I'm not convinced there's any bug at all. And I really don't get why, if there's one page of content, there's any need to wrap it in all these null frames/framesets.
Indeed. It looks like the page is missing some </frameset> tags... and since <frameset> can contain another <frameset> our behavior here is correct.
I don't know whether or not it's a bug but IE6 well manages all the pages. One more comment : all pages have been built automaticaly by PhotoImpact 8.
IE is rather infamous for forgiving a lot of invalid code. You might want to use another tool to create the code, or hand-code it.
It's not a matter of "forgiving". It's just a matter of IE not rendering framesets correctly that Mozilla gets right... The tool in question is clearly pandering to IE's bug in this case, but that does not mean that Mozilla should introduce the same bug....
I agree with all of you. But, as PhotoImpact8 might be worlwide used to share pictures on the web, a communty might not be able to use Mozilla for that. How could we advise Ulead to change his way to create web pages ?
By having people who actually use the product contact the company that sold them defective software and ask that it be fixed.
