    newbie in need

    Doses anyone know why I cannot get pages to load into one of my frames.. Of course its the only frame I want to change content in!!
    Its a new frameset and all I have done is save the frameset and the four frames housed in it. One frame along the top, one along the bottom, and a split frame in the middle to make up the whole thing. Oh and I gave each frame a different background colour so I can view more easily during constuction. I want to change the pages in the right middle frame called "contents" but no matter what i try it loads in a new window??
    I can get the pages to load in any of the other 3 frames but I wont be doing this , I need it to load in the targeted frame as laid out as "contents"

    Any idea why it wont load into the specified frame??? below is the code from that page

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    background-color: #FF0000;
    #leftnavigation {
    left: 0;
    top: 0;

    <div id="leftnavigation"><img src="images/mainnav.gif" alt="Main Navigation" width="256" height="402" border="0" usemap="#Mapone" />
    <map name="Mapone" id="Mapone">
    <area shape="poly" coords="134,48,224,3,250,15,233,48,138,81" href="aboutpage.html" target="contents" />
    <area shape="poly" coords="135,97,225,70,251,84,234,112,138,129" href="header.html" target="bottomFrame" />

    Could be the doctype:

    Also, checking the syntax for <area> I didn't see any reference to the target attribute - doesn't mean it won't work, but it might be worth checking.
