Image with no link color?

http://www.huron.net/~jlewis/new/index.htm is where I'm keeping the pages I'm working on.  In the top left corner i have an image that says home.  It was an image map but I need two frames to change when it's clicked on so I just left it a normal image for now.  I'd like to click on it and have it change two frames as well as have text appear in the status bar.  One other thing I don't like is the link color around the image.  Can anyone help me with that?

Get rid of the blue box around the image with <img src=... BORDER=0>

Change two frames by using JavaScript-URLs... I won't elaborate because you already use these elsewhere on your page...

<MAP ...>
<area shape="rect" coords="163,17,192,36" href="javascript:parent.subnav.location='test1.htm'; parent.main.location='test2.htm';" onMouseOver="status='This is my link';return true;" onmouseout="status='';return true;">

should do it...

Good luck!

Ok, the link thing worked but you have to look at my pages to see where I'm saying there is an error.  I use the javascript navigation for the home link but it gives an error.  Also, I'm not using an image map anymore.
Your problem is not at all related to the question!

<frameset framespacing="0" border="false" frameborder="0" rows="64,*">
  <frameset cols="86,49%">
    <frame name="home" scrolling="no" noresize target="contents" src="homenav.htm">
    <frame name="mainnav" src="mainnav.htm" scrolling="no" noresize>
  <frameset cols="86,*">
    <frame name="subnav" target="main" scrolling="no" noresize src="subnav.htm">
    <frame name="main" src="main.htm" scrolling="no" noresize>
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>

You are using NESTED frames, so "parent" refers to the next-level frameset, not to the top-level frame,
i.e. in your "home", "parent" refers to the first frameset which does NOT contain a frame called subnav, it would have to be something like parent.parent.frames[1].subnav, or - easier - top.frames[1].subnav.
You could also name your framesets to make the code more readable...

Also, you should generally check your code!! <frameset cols="86,49%"> is not quite correct... (what happens to the rest?)

Let me know if that helps...

It helped.  As for the coding of the frames, it was Front Page 98 that coded that!  I decided to try using one of the new editors out there to see how it would go.  Apparently I have run into more problems than normal.
