frames & bookmarks

Hi there

I am in the process of redesigning our web site and would like to implement frames. 1 frame for the marginal menus and the 2nd frame for the pages theirselves.

Problem I still have:
If one bookmarks any page, the bookmark is always set to my original top page and not to the actual page which I wanted to bookmark.

Is there a possibility (eg. Java) to implement some things, that I can bookmark a certain page and not the top one and again jump to that bookmark so that it reloads not only the page itself but also the frame layout and the actual side margin menu?

Would really appreciate any help to solve that problem.

Thanks very much
Daniel

To the best of my knowledge, this is one of the frustrations generated by sites using frames, and it is not feasible to bookmark a page other than the home page. Maybe things have changed in recent browser versions, but anyway, you'll get many users with incompatible browsers getting to your pages and not being able to bookmark them...

I agree with TERMINUS, I don't think it's gonna work . . . however I disagree with his statement that you'll get many visitors who can't use frames, I think that group is a minority at this point .  . .

Now I read the whole question!
If you want to reload the menu file, or load a new file in the menu frame, just add this to the anchor tag in the menu:
onclick="frame[0].location=newfile.htm"
It should look like this:
<a href="bookm.htm#This is a bookmark" target="main" onclick="frame[0].location=newfile.htm">Link to
bookmark</a>
