dissapearing meta name tags

Guest

Can someone please tell me why every time I close and then re-open FP the line:
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default">
turns into
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="none, default">
I keep trying to change the tag and FP keeps changing it back so I have to
change it again to see my shared borders when I edit the page. The site
publishes fine, and all shared borders display when run on server, but
locally I have to change that tag every time I re-open this particular site.
Why is FP changing this tag and not others that I am editing in the page?

Exact code:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>Home</title>
<meta name="Microsoft Theme" content="ice 1011, default">
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tl, default">
</head>
<body>

Make sure in Format Shared Borders you have the top, left, bottom selected and set as default for all pages

Thanks Stefan.
I actually figured that part out after much tinkering (I'm an Access guy,
web stuff is very forign.) I chose the option in format, shared borders and
checked the boxes top, left botom. After doing so, I closed FP and reopened
again. This time, the code didn't change on me as it had. So that solves that
mystery.

However, I am still puzzeled by some inconsistant behavior of the same FP
Web site which I do work on with two different client PCs (both the same Dell
configuration).
After discovering the shared borders properties and checking them, my
navigation bars showed up, but not as I expected. The navigation appears as
hyperlinks, and do not look like the "Ice Theme" buttons that used to display
before I changed the shared border settings. Now they are just underlined
links. I'm pretty sure, however that the buttons still appear correctly when
run on the server. So I was very confused about this... So that was last
night... left that location after publishing the site to the server, and went
home. At home, I published my site from the remote server location to my
local hard drive and everything looks and acts as expected. So, why would
these controls take on such different appearences?

Now that I am home and everything is working as I expect, this issue is more
to help me understand how FP works than to solve a particular problem. I get
very confused when I can't figure what is happening, why it happens, or what
I can do to fix it. One more note, On the other machine I was working on last
night, I tried creating a new website and applying the same theme "Microsoft
Ice" and there were no problems at all... ??? What's uPPP with that?
