    Well the problem is probably steming from the fact that the frameset and the main frame have several coding errors in them which causing the browser to know what is going on. The only reason IE on Windows is even remotely working is that it doesn't follow very many standards and is incredibly forgiving.

    For example on the content frame you have a closing body tag right after the opening one and before all the content. That is incorrect, it should go right before the closing html tag.

    You might want to also start by putting a doctype on your page: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=18346 HTML 4.01 is probably what you want to use.

    I'd also suggest making the height of the content area larger if you still want the black area on the top and bottom. As it is now, it is kind of small.
