Thanks for the prompt and useful reply. Setting the collect.cfg to

format DocumentUseHTML true

fixed my problem and allowed the frameset to display properly.

I'm still having trouble getting relative links to load into the frames
after initial display. This is the "Internal Link" error. I looked in
the archives and found advice regarding setting HTMLplug to -nolinks and
file_is_url, but none of these worked for me.

I've found a satisfactory workaround for now, but if anyone knows how to
get relative links to load into targeted frames, I would like to improve
the current design a bit...

Again, thank you for the initial help, which got me over the toughest

Hi Jim

Try setting
format DocumentUseHTML true
in your collect.cfg file

Does it display properly now?
