Resize Subsonic frames

I upgraded Subsonic today and I had to remember the little hack I put in to enable resizing of the playlist frame. This is the second time I've had to look up how to do this, so I'm just going to document it here.

By default, each piece of the Subsonic web interface is a frame, and all the frames are borderless and not resizable.  This is kind of a pain because sometimes I have a long playlist and I want to see all of it at once.  The ideal way to do that would be to just increase the size of the playlist frame - but I can't do that.  Fortunately, fixing this is relatively easy.  You can just modify the frameset markup in the following file:
C:\subsonic\jetty\<number>\webapp\WEB-INF\jsp\index.jsp

For my case, the solution was to change the third frameset tag by increasing turning on frame borders and increasing the border size.  Here's the markup:
<frameset rows="75%,25%" border="5" framespacing="0" frameborder="1">

    Thanks

    Just wanted to say thanks for this. Subsonic was starting to get on my nerves when I used it on smaller monitors or notebooks. I even bumped up the border to "10" to make it a little easier to grab.
