Webpage Heading - Not displaying what I want

  chale 14:00 13 Jun 2008

I am using Front page 2000. My web page main heading does not display what I tell it to do. Instead it displays 'NEW page 1 Windows'. I am using Frames. Where could I be going wrong?

The title tag content obviously needs to be changed to your chosen title. How you do that will depend on FP2k, which I have never used (thankfully).

By the way; I hope you don't mind me inquiring, but is this project destined for publication to the web or is it just an experiment? If this will go public, ditch the frames.

It is destined for publication. I seem to like frames apart from this draw back. Any disadvantages of frames?

1. Search engine results. Search engines cannot properly and reliably index framesets and results may display without the frames. You are essentially trying to place more than one page at a single URL.

2. Potential for accessibility problems. Generally speaking, screen readers cannot handle framesets in the way in which the designer intended them to be read, so the results are non-semantic and disorienting. The most expensive assistive software, such as JAWs, is a bit better at this.

3. Unnecessarily hard to maintain and redesign. Good web design presents enough hard work as it is.

Pretty huge drawbacks, in other words.

Many, many thanks! I will abandon frames and look else where. I have noticed that when doing a search, the results are not what I expect. Thanks Forum members.
