Hi,
    I'm wondering how when someone calls up my frameset page I can boot them out of all the previous frames they were in.
Thanks.

You could make your initial page a dummy page which immediately calls your frameset page with TARGET='_blank'.  This will give the visitor a new page to view your framesets in all their glory

cide,

stick this in your HEAD

<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1; URL=http://www.blah.co.uk/niceframesetpage.html">

the url needs to be the full address/path of your page (substitute 'blah' and 'nice...' accordingly)  the content is the delay before going.

You may wish to put a nice piccy or words in this page as you'll be leaving that copy of the browser open as you jump to the new one.

This will work (if you allow javascripts). I have it in all my hompages!

if( top.location != location )
        top.location.href = location.href;

This works with at least Netscape 3.0 and MS IE 4.0
