Why don't my frames appear when I Preview?

My page looks great in Design mode, but when I Preview the page, only the top
frame appears. I've looked and looked to try to figure it out. Other frame
pages work just fine on this site, but a few have this behavior.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for helping. Here is the code I think you want:
===================================

<html>
<head>
<title>Mountain River East Condominium</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<frameset rows="118,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frameset cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="MRElogo.htm" >
</frameset>
<frameset cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frameset frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" rows="*">
<frameset cols="208,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="leftFrame" noresize scrolling="NO" src="leftFrame.htm"
frameborder="NO">
<frame name="mainFrame" src="main.htm" frameborder="NO">
</frameset>
</frameset>
</frameset>
</frameset>
<noframes>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
</body>
</noframes>
</html>

<html></html>
======================================

I thought that too so I deleted it and it made no difference, so I put it
back in as that is how FP did it.

I would leave it deleted. It is an error at best.

Your frames code is a little strange -

<frameset rows="118,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frameset cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="MRElogo.htm" >
</frameset>
<frameset cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">

*** what is this frameset for ^^^^^^^^^^^^?

<frameset frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" rows="*">

*** what is this one for, too ^^^^^^^^^^^?

<frameset cols="208,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="leftFrame" noresize scrolling="NO" src="leftFrame.htm"
frameborder="NO">
<frame name="mainFrame" src="main.htm" frameborder="NO">
</frameset>
</frameset>
</frameset>
</frameset>

Why would this code not work as well?

<frameset rows="118,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frameset cols="*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="MRElogo.htm" >
</frameset>
<frameset cols="208,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame name="leftFrame" noresize scrolling="NO" src="leftFrame.htm"
frameborder="NO">
<frame name="mainFrame" src="main.htm" frameborder="NO">
</frameset>
</frameset>

But, the weird thing is that it was working just fine. You can see the site
at www.mountainrivereast.com. But, then I was editing the index.htm file and
went to preview it and it didn't show. Now, I am afraid to pubish it
thinking that it might not work and then I've screwed it up. I inherited
this site from a professional. Looking at some of the things she did makes
me think that maybe she wasn't as professional as we thought.

Any ideas why it would stop working?

Here is where I am so far on this.

This page was developed by someone else in Dreamweaver. All the code runs
just great on the site. When I imported it into FP 2003 the strange behavior
began.

With the code downloaded from the old site and imported into FP, simply
publishing the very same code onto my new site with FP causes the strange
behavior.

I was able to successfully create a new frames page with the same targets
and it works fine. So, my workaround is to recreate all frames pages in the
site (only about a dozen).

Thanks for all your help. I attribute this to the importing behavior of FP.

HTML is HTML (as long as its valid), no matter what authoring system writes
it. The frame code you show is likely the cause of your problems, as there
is no need for those empty framesets.
I attribute this to the importing behavior of FP.
I think that is unlikely.

How did you "import" it?

The correct way is to publish back to your computer from the site to make
sure you get it all and that FP correctly sets up the links etc.
