    Can someone steer a newbie in the right direction, please?

    I'm trying to create a simple web site to check news items everyday. I did
    something wrong, because the default "main" page does not show up in the
    frame, and the contents items come up as a "pop up" instead of in the frame.

    Regards,
    John
