Web Page with Frames Is Not Displayed Properly in Internet Explorer

This article was previously published under Q169522
SYMPTOMS
When you are using Internet Explorer to view a Web page, a blankpage may be displayed instead of a defined set of frames. If you right-click an empty area of the Web page and then click View Source, or if you right-click an empty area of the Web page, click Properties, and then click Analyze, you may receive the following message:
This document might not display properly because there is a FRAMESET within the BODY of the document. The page author can resolve this problem by
  1. Removing the BODY tag.
  2. Insuring that there is no additional HTML code between the HEAD of the document and the FRAMESET.
CAUSE
This behavior occurs if the author of the Web page has mistakenly locatedthe <FRAMESET> tag after the <BODY> tag in the main or "framing" HypertextMarkup Language (HTML) document.
RESOLUTION
Contact the Web page author (or the administrator of the Web server)and request all <FRAMESET> tags and their underlying instructions bemoved so that they precede any <BODY> tags.
STATUS
This behavior is by design.
MORE INFORMATION
The framing HTML document defines the frame regions to be displayed inthe browser and the documents or objects that initially appear in theframes.

For information about the HTML syntax for frames, see the following Website:
