Hello, I seem to be having the same problem you are. By any chance are you using Netscape Navigator 7? Or some other browser? Sorry I can't offer any suggestions to your problem.
-Edit: Err, sorry but I miss understood the question. But I solved the problem I was having (it was not a bug on my browser as far as I know, just some bad coding on my part). But I am still interested as to whether or not you can have one frame dictate the style for all frames. Thanks.
