I know the obvious answer is "Set the width attribute for the content".
Well, I reckon a more obvious answer should be <FRAME SCROLLING="VERTICAL">
It appears that we have only 3 options: No, Yes or Auto.
Is this right? I don't want auto horizontal bars popping up by accident! But I do want auto vertical bars.

If you don't mind me asking (I'm just curious), why are you using frames for this project?
(And before the anti-frames mafia shows up and says "don't use frames, use includes instead" keep in mind that a lot of free hosting providers don't allow people to use server side includes, ASP or PHP code in their pages.)

Studio Junkies, what you're suggesting is that your content may be wider than 100% of the page but you don't want your users to be able to scroll to see it?
You are correct with your assessment of the options and if you only want vertical scrolling the setting the scrolling to auto should allow this and aslong as you ensure that your content fits inside the frame then you should only get vertical scrolling.
You could set a width of 100% for your content inside this frame so that it also expands relative to the size of the users window which may be the best bet.
Hope that helps in a round about way?
