      I'd say the frame, since the purpose of a frame is to show another html-file.
      BUT, hence it does show another html-file, it also uses a body tag. Which
      then overrules the body-tag of the main html-file.

      So, I think it would be much easier if you'd use the same values from the
      original body-tag for the iFrame's body-tag.

      Even more easier would it be if you'd use an external style-sheet for both
      html-files. Then you can just stick with <BODY> and the style-sheet does the

      For instance, you could write something like this :


      body {
      background-color: White;
      background : url(../Images/iceberg.jpg) no-repeat fixed center;
      font-size : 12pt;
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-style: normal;
      font-weight: normal;
      font-variant: normal;
      margin-left: 0px;
      margin-top: 0px;
      text-align : justify;

      J> Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

      Well, hope this helps.
