All web sites are coded in html. What doesn't work?

If you used Internet Explorer as your test browser, that could be the problem. IE is 10 years behind web standards and buggy. Always use a modern browser (anything but IE) to do your initial testing. The bugs in IE are known, as are the hacks.

This part is wrong and throws IE into "quirks mode". If you used IE to test your browser, then you designed to what is essentially a bug:
[HTML]<style type="text/css"> <!-- body { background-color: #006699; } --> </style> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" ""> <html> <head> <title>Dive Monkeys</title> [/HTML]
Change it to this:
[HTML] <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" ""> <html> <head> <title>Dive Monkeys</title><style type="text/css"> <!-- body { background-color: #006699; } --> </style> [/HTML]
However, this may change the layout in IE because it won't be in quirks anymore.

Yes it is. And it will continue to be until you fix the points made above.
