SYMPTOMS

When you preview your Microsoft FrontPage Web page in a Web browser, you see that the shared border is applied two times to the same page.

CAUSE

This issue occurs if you have more than one <body> tag in your code. FrontPage applies the shared borders to the <body> tag of a page. If there is more than one <body> tag, the shared borders are applied more than one time to each page.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, remove any additional code that has been duplicated from the header section in the body section.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start FrontPage.
  2. Open your Web page. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. On the File menu, click Open Site.
    2. In the Open Site dialog box, click the Web page that you want to open, and then click Open.
  3. Click the Code view.
  4. Locate the <head> tags in the <body> section.
  5. Select the code that you located in step 4, right-click the code, and then click Delete.
  6. On the File menu, click Save.
  7. On the File menu, point to Preview in Browser, and then click the Web browser that you want to use to preview the page.
If you still see that the shared borders is applied two times on your Web page, remove the additional <body> tag and the shared borders, and then re-create the shared borders.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open your Web page.
  2. Click Code view.
  3. Locate the additional <body> tags.
  4. Select the code that you located in step 3, right-click the code, and then click Delete.
  5. On the File menu, click Save.
  6. On the File menu, point to Preview in Browser, and then click the Web browser that you want to use to preview the page.
