Help with Frames - Macromedia Flash Sitedesign

I've almost completed my first site using frames in dreamweaver. Problem is when I view it at 800 x 600 that everything is distorted...meaning the pages do not fit in the "main" frame. It's set up with the top frame holding a flash movie, then I have two side frames (left and right) the "main" frame in the middle shows the other pages of the site. How can I go about making it look as uniform in 800 x 600 as in 1024 x 768? Thanks,...

    Default Help with frames

    I have created a page with Dreamweaver 8 using frames. I have 3 frames created
    ...called fees.html (a top banner) , fees1.html (a right navigation .swf) and
    fees2.html with text and a chart.

    My problem is on my index page ..when I click on the fees link ..it goes to
    fees.html ..but it only displays the top portion of the page and not all frames.

    How can I get this to view all 3 frames using one link.

    thanks for your help ..Rob

    Default Re: Help with frames

    Do you really need to use frames? The reason for using or not using frames
    should be based on a) your site's needs, and b) your willingness to accept
    the potential problems that frames can create for you as developer and
    maintainer of the site and for your visitors as casual users of the site.

    I am down on frames because I believe that they create many more problems
    than they solve.
    Judging from the posts here, and the kinds of problems that are described,
    the kind of person most likely to elect to use frames is also the kind of
    person most likely ill-prepared fo solve the ensuing problems when they
    arise. If you feel a) that you understand the problems and b) that you are
    prepared to handle them when they occur, and c) that you have a need to use
    frames, then by all means use them.

    As far as I know, the most comprehensive discussions of frames and their
    potential problems can be found on these two links -

    Also, I would caution you about using Flash for your navigation, too. It's
    inaccessible and unspiderable.
