Browsing with IE4.01

I am new to WEB publishing & am in the process of craeting a personal web site. I created one with MS publisher 98 without frames & it works OK.  I now am using MS Frontpage 97 & have started using frames. When I test it I find that if I use my contents window (fixed on the left) to select the main window (to the right of it). A new browser window is opend.  This only seems to happen with frames. Any suggestions please. Have checke the setup of the browser.

If you send output or address a window or frame that has not yet been opened then the browser will open a new window with that name. Check that your frame is named correctly and that you are calling it by the right name and that you have spelled everything correct (including upper/lower case). This should solve your problem. Still no luck? Post your code and I will help you.

rafistern,
This is the code as requested.  I tried again to redo the frames using Frontpage 97 Frames wizard.  I seem to be missing something

IN you <A HREF=""> links, you need to add the parameter TARGET=""

YOur right frame should be named.. something like MainContent...
Then you link on left would be <A HREF="thispage.htm" TARGET="MainContent">This link goes here</A>

That will open it in the frame..
