IE8 Frame Size Bug?
A third party application we use which uses framesets is not cooperating in
Internet Explorer 8. When you resize the frameset a cookie is saved using
the value of document.all.complainer.cols, when the page is reloaded the
value from the cookie is used to determine the frame size. This works fine
in previous version of IE but 8 appears to return a random value (eg
23900,81) which make the left side a "little" wide. Thinking this might be
due to the use of document.all, I changed this to
document.getElementByID("complainer").cols and it returns the same value. We
have raised this with the software developers but I’m starting to think it
might not be something they can easily fix and it might actually be a bug
with IE8. If I’m missing something could someone please enlighten me?

Happening here too.

Does not look like the value is random though...divide it by 100 and you
should have the correct width.

RE: IE8 Frame Size Bug?
daniel...should note that it was discovered by rob that if the initial value
for cols is set using percentages instead of pixels then the frameset behaves
as expected. This may help you make a more permanent workaround to your code.
