Out of curiosity I checked the page in Opera and it does 
work in Opera. It also worked first try in IE. In Mozilla 
the homepage displayed but I got server error messages 
when trying links.

I ran it through an online validator and only came up with 
a few errors. All related to frames. It might not be that 
hard for him to change.

The errors were:


line #9: unknown attribute "FRAMESPACING" for element 
line #9: unknown attribute "BORDER" for element <FRAMESET>.
line #9: unknown attribute "FRAMEBORDER" for element 
line #10: unknown attribute "TARGET" for element <FRAME>.

I'm a bit puzzled why any of those would cause the problem 
but I'm no HTML expert.
