repainting a frame

    I have a frame, which, I am resisizing from rows (frameset rows) from 0 to a
    value, in effect, making the frame visible/invisible based on activity at
    another frame.

    However, I need to be able to "repaint" this frame, as artifacts of whatever
    whas there, on that portion of screen previously, seems to linger about. I
    dont mean to reload the frame (in fact, I expressly do not want to do that)
    but rather just to 'repaint' the frame.

    This only occurs in Netscape (Mozilla, 7.1) not in MSIE. Does anyone know
    how to do this?

    I am enclosing my source code here. The first 40 pixels in height are a tab
    bar, the content is in the remainder below it. However, it seems the first
    40 pixels of the remainder are what I need to repaint. Perhaps I have a
    glaring error in my code that is only manifesting in Netcape? Thanks, Ike

    Here is the main page, which instantiates the frames:

    <HTML><HEAD>
    <TITLE>Guerrilla Grip Main</TITLE></HEAD>
    <frameset rows="40,*,0,0,0">
    <frame src="ggtab1a.php" name="main" scrolling="no" noresize
    FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0 marginwidth="1"
    marginheight="1">
    <frame src="index.html" name="work" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0
    FRAMESPACING=0 marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0">
    <frame src="chat/chat.php" name="work" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0
    FRAMESPACING=0 marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0">
    <frame src="GGUser.php" name="work" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0
    FRAMESPACING=0 marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0">
    <frame src="reports/index.php" name="work" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0
    FRAMESPACING=0 marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0">
    <noframes>
    <body>
    <p>
    <p>This web page uses frames, but your browser doesn't
    support them.</p>
    </body>
    </noframes>
    </frameset>
    </BODY>
    </html>


    Here is ggtab1a.php:

    <html lang="en-US">
    <head>
    <title>Tabs</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="lstyle.css"
    media="screen,projection" type="text/css">
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="navcontainer">
    <ul id="navlist">
    <li id="active">
    <a href="ggtab1a.php" target="_self"
    onClick="parent.document.body.rows='40,*,0,0,0'" id="current">Homepage</a>
    </li>
    <li><a href="ggtab2a.php" target="_self"
    onClick="parent.document.body.rows='40,0,*,0,0'">Coworkers</a></li>
    <li><a href="ggtab3a.php" target="_self"
    onClick="parent.document.body.rows='40,0,0,*,0'">Applications</a></li>
    <li><a href="ggtab4a.php" target="_self"
    onClick="parent.document.body.rows='40,0,0,0,*'">Reporting</a></li>
    <li><a href="logout.php" target="_parent">Logout</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    The remaining pages, ggtab2a.php, ggtab3a.php, ggtab4a.php are just like
    this one, only they highlight themselves in the ul list as ggtab1a.php does
    above. -Ike
