Why can't you get at the coding? In FrontPage, themes use shared borders,
and the files for the borders do exist in the frontpage web. If you are
using frontpage2000, look in the directory called "borders". If you are
using FrontPage98, go to the preferences (options? Web settings? Customize?
Whatever it is called) and make front page show hidden files. That will
help find the files containing the borders.
