i hope somebody here can help me out....

i recently registered a .co.uk domain with 1&1

today i set it forwarding to where my files are stored (currently on free ISP web space)

i realised the forwarding method would be to use frames, so that the real URL is masked, however.... i have a potential problem

the single frame technique that is being used to load my homepage is adding some extra padding around the edges of my pixel-perfect CSS designs when viewed in IE6

i've also tried accessing the domain in both Firefox & Opera, and in both browsers, they correctly display the page precisely as it should be (without any bonus padding)

my worry is that IE is adding about 5-10px of default frame padding for the frame, and that there is no way i can remove it. This could be a big problem for me.

the primitive frames code 1&1 is using is as follows:

<HTML><HEAD>
<META NAME="description" content="">
<META NAME="keywords" content="">
<TITLE>mynewdomain.co.uk</TITLE>

</HEAD>
<FRAMESET ROWS="100%,*" BORDER="0" FRAMEBORDER="0">
<FRAME SRC="http://www.example.com/myaccount/" SCROLLING="AUTO" NAME="bannerframe" NORESIZE>
</FRAMESET>
<NOFRAMES>
mynewdomain.co.uk
<P>
<DIV ALIGN="CENTER"><A HREF="http://www.example.com/myaccount/">http://mynewdomain.co.uk/</A></DIV>
</NOFRAMES>
</HTML>

the problem i have is that, because this code is generated by 1&1, i have no way of styling the frame to have 0px padding.

i hope someone can help

thanks
