When you hit refresh/reload, it reloads the entire "index.htm", which includes the nav frame and the main frame.
How can you get around this, and have it only refresh/reload the right-hand frame you are currently viewing
(and not take you back to "main.htm" in the right-hand frame)?
Thanks in advance, meganm@erinet.com

from the user's point of view: right-click in the to-bee-reloaded frame and chose "refresh" or "erload" or "reload frame" from the context menu
from the designer"s point of view: <a href="JavaScript:window.reload()">click here</a> reloads the current frame only.

Christian, Thanks for responding.  Yes, I know that right-clicking will allow you to refresh just that frame, but that's not what the users are doing.  I finally solved this problem (after a few hours of tweaking) last night by replacing the image map with separate nav gifs and adding "target=body" to the <a href> tag. This will now reload the current r-hand frame without changing the page back to original.  This only works in browsers 4.0 up, but that will satisfy client.
Thanks again for trying to help -( I'm sure you thought I was nuts for asking what appeared to be such an obvious question)! Sincerely, megan

To List:  If you have this same problem, see my comment.  This problem was solved by adding <target=body> to <a href> tags.  Works in 4.0 browsers.
