I would be willing to bet that it is because the bottom frame is smaller in filesize and just simply loads quicker. To my knowledge, there is no way to dictate the page load sections.

I am puzzled as to why my bottom frame loads first on http://www.ashgrovehouse.com/Version2/ Do any of you know the "rules" for the order in which frames load? The top frame is defined first, so don't know why it loads last?? Much appreciate your help...
