I'm working in asp,in dreamweaver. In left frame, the page is not displaying, instead its code is displayed. Here is the code, frame 10 and 11 is added. What do they do?

Old sample
  <frameset rows="*,1 cols="163; framespacing=1; frameborder=yes; border=1 bordercolor=#CCCCCC">
    <frame src="page1.asp; name="leftFrame" scrolling="No" >
    <frame src="login.asp" name="mainFrame">
    <frame src="UntitledFrame-10.htm">
    <frame src="UntitledFrame-11.htm">

Modified sample moved from answer
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "">
<title>Frame page</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<frameset rows="69,*" cols="*" framespacing="1" frameborder="yes" border="1" bordercolor="#CCCCCC">
  <frame src="main.asp" name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize >
  <frameset rows="*,1" cols="163,*" framespacing="1" frameborder="yes" border="1" bordercolor="#CCCCCC">

Can you please add more detail as to what you want to accomplish?

Frame 10 and Frame 11 are trying to load an htm web page.

Hi maahanm, was my assumption correct that you see the ASP code instead of it being executed? If this is the case please follow my advice on checking your IIS configuration.

Edited a title; old one did not indicate exact topic.

You 1) violated XML structure (and even HTML), 2) failed to define layout for all 4 HTML pages. Because of invalid layout you could only see first page "page1.asp" on top.

Replace first opening tag with the following:

<frameset rows="20%, 80%" cols="30%, 60%" framespacing="1" frameborder="yes" border="1" bordercolor="#CCCCCC">

All four pages (URLs defined by src attributed) should exist.

For more detail, read this:[^], and, for example, this:[^].

(Attention! There are a lot of warnings against using frames -- you can find a lot of posts in the topic. I personally don't care.)

Good luck!

5+ Good answer
First of all you need to correct your HTML code sample as it contains unpaired quotes.
Regarding your question as to why you are seeing code is that your IIS probably isn't configured to run ASP scripts. Please check your IIS configuration for that.

While OP tagged question with asp, he is using dreamweaver and not showing any asp related stuff. I guess he is not using at all ..., actually he has added an answer to his own question - no ...
Manfred Rudolf Bihy 27-Jan-11 16:28pm    
When I said ASP Espen I meant ASP. OP seems to use this outdated technology :). I still think if he sees "code" as he put it there must be some configuration issue with IIS.

YES, you are so right, I missed the src="main.asp" ...

Maybe he needs to know about this nice little download: and master pages - he would probably be infinitely better off leveraging .Net 4 instead of the old asp

Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 27-Jan-11 16:11pm    
Correct answer + useful suggestion, my 5.
<frame src="page1.asp; name="leftFrame" scrolling="No" >

Check out you missed the double quote "page1.asp".
