I am currently designing a website, which uses frames. I use two frames -- one main frame and a frame for links within the site. When you use one of the links, netscape brings up a new window. Is there a way around this? Send your answer to: wblack@ccco.net please!

Use this code

<HTML><HEAD>
<TITLE>MY HOMEPAGE
</TITLE></HEAD>
<FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">
<FRAME SRC="links.html" NAME="INDEX"      SCROLLING="NO" NORESIZE>
<FRAME SRC="main.html" NAME="PAGE"      SCROLLING="AUTO" NORESIZE>
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>

Now let me explain to you the code.

FRAMESET is just the standard frame tag.
COLS just says that you want vertical frames.
ROWS would suggest that you want horizontal frames.
The percentage amount is the fraction of the screen you would like your frames to appear. Make sure that they total 100%.
SRC is the name of the file that you want to appear in a particular frame. The first filename will put that file in the first frame (the 20% one) while the second filename will put the file in the second frame (the 80% one).
NAME is the name of the frame where you want your file to appear.
SCROLLING allows for scrolling if your page is larger than the frame. The options are "NO" or "AUTO".
RESIZE allow a user to manually resize the frame to his/her convinience.

Now for the files. I'm assuming that you want your links frame to stay while the user browses the rest of your pages. In order for your main page to stay within the frame, and not pop up on a new window like it is now, the links in your links.html file will have to be targeted to that frame.
Ex.
<A HREF="nextpage.html" TARGET="page">

If you want to replace your links frame with another file, the link to that file would have to be targeted to that frame.
Ex.
<A HREF="newlinks.html" TARGET="links">

If you want to break out of frames, just TARGET="_top".
If you want to open a new window, TARGET="top".

I hope this helps.
