I have an index.html that's split into 3 frames. I want to change it to divs. The "convert tables to ap divs" is grayed out, is there anything I can do? I was following the instructions from here: http://www.ehow.com/how_8598389_convert-frames-divs-dreamweaver.html

If the convert doesn't work for frames is there any other way to do it?

Thanks, AZ

Frames or iFrames? It really depends on the content of your frames whether this is easily possible or not. Odd reason (to convert frames to DIVs) given on the site you link to: "Dreamweaver lets you convert frames and tables of your website into AP ("absolutely positioned") DIVs so they can be viewed in older browsers." !? – w3dk Nov 1 '12 at 18:32

You could always go straight into the HTML code via DreamWeaver and change the iFrame tag to a DIV tag.
