My web pages make use of frames. I would like to give users the option of looking at a noframes version. However, if I provide this link on a page which has frames, the frames remain. How do I get rid of them?

one way to do that is to use TARGET="_top"

<A HREF="noframes.html" TARGET="_top">Frameless version</A>

there are only few special targets like this one.

_top -- opens the url in the top-level window
_parent -- opens the url in the parent frame window
_self -- opens the url in the same frame window
_blank -- opens the url in a blank window

Also, if you are trying to make your page load nicely for people with browsers that don't support frames, adding the tags:
<NOFRAMES>
<BODY>
</BODY>
</NOFRAMES>

Whatever you put between the NOFRAMES tags will be displayed by browsers which don't support them.  Of course there aren't very many people left who use non-frame browsers...  so this is becoming out-dated.
