cascading style sheets and SSI all from the first frameset. (oh yeah, and

loaded, the browser does a refresh of all frames, but crashes.  This 
problem only happens the first time you visit one of the sites(doesn't 
refresh after loading on subsequent visits).

crashes).  So there would seem to be a problem with Apache.
