Description jasneet 2009-05-12 16:09:22 PDT
I Steps:
1. Go to http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/bookmgr_OS390/libraryserver/zosv1r9/
2. move cursor to try to resize left frame area (in order to see full book 

II Issue:
cannot resize, unable to grab frame for resize

III Conclusion:
The document is actually out of spec.  See http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/present/frames.html#h-16.2.2

The problem we are seeing is that they are using an attribute resize="yes".  That attribute is not in the spec.  The spec allows for noresize which they use in two different ways.  Here is the source:

  <frameset id="main" name="main" rows="50px,50px, *" frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0" spacing="0">
    <frame name="mastheadFrame" title="banner" src="testcase_files/banner.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" noresize="0" scrolling="no">
    <frame name="searchFrame" src="testcase_files/search.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" noresize="noresize" scrolling="no">

    <frameset id="center" name="center" cols="300,*" framespacing="4" border="7" frameborder="1" style="" noresize="">

      <frameset id="left" name="left" rows="30, *, 25" frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0" spacing="0" class="FRAMESTYLE1">

        <frame name="navbarFrame" src="testcase_files/navbar.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" class="FRAMESTYLE2" resize="yes" scrolling="no">

        <frame name="navigationFrame" src="testcase_files/tabbedPanes.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" resize="yes" scrolling="no">

        <frame name="tabFrame" src="testcase_files/tabs.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" resize="yes" scrolling="no">


      <frameset id="right" name="right" rows="30, *" frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0" spacing="0" class="FRAMESTYLE1">



However, the resize attribute should be ignored and the default behavior for a frame should be that it can be resized.

As I've mentioned before, it is insane to claim that what you've attached is a useful reduction.  It includes FIFTY-FIVE FILES.  I'm almost certain that the bug could be demonstrated with fewer than five files.

I think, you can confirm in for example in chromium 12.0.742.100 (88853) Ubuntu 11.04
at phppgadmin demo page: 
Left frameset could not be resized like in firefox or ie.

There are thinking its webkit bug
