Netscape (4) doesn't seem to strictly honour the frame margin tags.

I got around the problem by setting the margins in the actual page
(as well as when defining the frames) using <body marginwidth="0"
marginheight="0" ...) (set them to whatever you set in the frameset
in the page).  This workaround unfortunately means that maintaining
pages margins takes twice as long...

I haven't come across this before and so can't help.
