Frontpage problem; a frame in a frame (HELP!)

You may've heard this question a lot of times.

I have a frame page in Frontpage. It has two frames a content frame named "cont.htm" and a description frame called "cin.html"; they're both on "frames1.htm".  The first time I load it, it looks great, BUT if I go to any link on the description frame, it is opened inside the description frame, replacing "cin.htm".
If I go to another page with frames, I'll have the original "cont.htm" frame and the new ones, etc.

I've searched the whole WWW looking for an answer, but I haven´t found any specific.  I've heard "Put _top or _parent on the target...", but I haven't found the target line in Frontpage.

I'ld appreciate if you can tell me exactly what to do in Frontpage to solve this problem (if possible give me numbered steps or an example).  Thank you very much.

Sorry, you're out of luck w/frontpage, it doesn't support frames well (if at all). However, you're in luck, solving your problem is easy, you just need to manually add an entry:

In your frame1.htm you need to specify a name for each frame:
     <frame src="cont.htm" name="contents">
     <frame src="cin.htm" name="descrip">

Then, on any link you should add the "TARGET" you want the link to open in, so a link in cin.htm that you want to open in the Content frame would be:
     <a href="link.htm" target="content">link</A>
BTW, target="_top" opens the link in the whole window (unloading your frameset), target="_new" opens the link in a new window . ..

good luck,

Ed
