Newbie needs help with Frames code

I've written simple HTML code to create a website for a non-profit organization. It is the first site I've created and likely to be the last. I used Dave Taylor's book as a reference guide.

I chose to use Frames for my site and everything works fine, except nobody with a Mac using Safari can get past the first page referenced in the frameset code. My index page, minus the meta tags, is actually an exact copy of an example in Dave's book.

Would someone please look at the code and tell me how to fix it so Safari can read it with simple HTML code, if that's possible?

The meta tags are on the page, because I was told that search spiders have trouble navigating a frames site to get enough information to index and catalog.

The URL is: http://www.minnesotafarriers.com

Thanks for your help

I don't know who this Dave Taylor is but you need to find the nearest trash can and throw the book away. Hopefully you got it at a library and didn't buy it. It is not current with todays standards and some of the attributes don't even exist.

I will suggest you go to W3Schools and learn from there.

My problem was solved in an indirect way. Someone could have probably noticed my redundant tags and told me, but sending me to W3Schools did the trick.

There was nothing wrong with code itself, I just got carried away and didn't notice that I had written two opening tags and two closing tags. Apparently, IE doesn't care and Safari does.

I'm happy that everyone is able to see the site, now.

Redundant tags and at least 12 other things wrong.
