(was "QUESTION: Urgent Frame Help")

Just a quick follow up to a message I posted earlier regarding graphics
not printing in anchored frames. I've not yet heard back from Adobe, but
am convinced this is a BUG. A very annoying one at that.

Here's the deal:

Each major section heading in the doc has white text on a black
background. To achieve this effect, I used an anchored frame filled with
black, with a text box inside of it (white text). I chose this method
over a table because -- as I have posted before -- using a table caused
a bunch of _other_ problems.

The problem occurs when I try to put another anchored frame after the
heading (which is also a frame). Anything (imported graphics, text,
etc.) I put in the frame does not print -- however it shows up fine in
the PDF file). In fact, the problem doesn't seem to be the fact that
these two frames are next to each other, but that they both exist on the
same page. All of the other frames/graphics in my document are fine.
