FAQ HTML ISSUE: Frames Poorly Proportioned

I went to the FAQ and found that, strangely, the upper frame containing all the meat of the text was very small, while the lower frame containing only about 1-1/2 inches of content was much larger. Now I know well that you'all produce good looking pages ( NO sarcasm intended ), so I blamed my browser.

The Mozilla crew responded as follows. If they're right, the HTML should be changed. ISTR that it would be possible to size the bottom frame absolutely and let the upper frame occupy the rest of the canvas. Maybe < . . . rows="*,1.5in">.

------- Additional Comments From moz at placenamehere dot com 2003-03-30 20:08 ------- Source of document shows the bottom frame is defined as 2x the theight of the top:

<frameset rows="*,2*">
<frame name="upper" src="faq_frtoc.html">
<frame name="lower" src="lower.html">

Which is what I'm seeing on the following OS X browsers:
Moz 1.3
Moz 3/29
Camino 3/27
IE 5.2.2

This looks INVALID to me.

reporter, can you please attach scrren shots of what you think is "right" and
