I'm at the website of one of my favorite classical composers, Gerhard Richter, but nothing seems to work. I've tried clicking around in Camino and Safari, and then I viewed the source code in Safari. The results are as follows:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>musik-handwerk.de</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<FRAMESET ROWS="*,0">
<FRAME SRC="http://www.webpartitur.de/musik-handwerk" NORESIZE>
<NOFRAMES>
Your browser does not support frames.
</NOFRAMES>
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>

O.k., if Safari does not support frames, what Mac browser does?

Safari supports frames, this site is just not built that well or just outdated (it says ©2001). It seems to be working fine for me in Safari 4 & Firefox 3.

What version of Safari do you have? I'm using 4.0.2
I visited the site and with the exception of
the html code showing up on the "html" linked page,
which actually looks like it's an intentional background design,
the site works just fine.

Worked OK here. No offense, but I find the puzzle/Flash/image that trails the mouse around VERY disconcerting. Tends to make one think nothing is "working."

Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be. Lots of web visitors just want a straight path to info, maybe some images.

P.S. - The only active links I found were in the small-print menu, upper right. The large terms in the page design don't respond as links. Am guessing they're not supposed to.
Firefox 3.5.1.

I once p'od a web page Flash person when I said that to me the best part of web Flash animations was the little itty bitty "skip intro" click line.
Fun to read the WebPagesThatSuck and AskTog sites to see examples of Bad Design and interface.
