Netscape: Inline Frame & Text Box Issue
I am revamping my buiness website, using Frontpage 2002. On checking it with Netscape (7.1), I find that hyperlinks in both inline frames and text boxes do not work.
I this a limitation of Netscape, is there a work-around, or am I overlooking something painfully obvious?
Thanks in advance!

I can't think of any cross-browser issues with "inline frames" (iframes?) and Netscape (7.1).
It might be a known cross-browser issue somewhere else in the document(s), and not something to do with the parent-child relationship between the outer HTML and the HTML in the iframe.
Can you post the code of the <a href=" -------"> and any associated styling?

I posted a test page at:
It contains a simple link within a text box. Viewed in IE, the link loads it's target. In NN (7.1), the link is inoperable (fails to load the target page).
I mentioned a similar problem with inline frames in my initial post. Hummmm.... must have been a brain-fart. My inline frames are working fine.
Thanks for your help and fast response!

Android- I posted a simple text box with a link at: http://www.digi-graphics.com/test_directory/test_page.htm
The link works in IE but not NN.... Any suggestions?

Not sure if it's your problem, but in
<td align="left" valign="top">(Text box)<p class="menuitem"> <a target="_blank" href="target.htm">Link</a></td>
Older versions of Netscape were finiky about that kind of thing, don't know about newer ones.

Thanks for looking at it... adding the tag did not change the behavior.
It was suggested by someone else that the problem is caused by sloppy code generated by FrontPage...."FrontPage generated code rarely works in other browsers."
Can a text box be coded manually or is it a sloppy bit of proprietary code that only FP employs?
