As far as I know, the only way to do this would be to use frames - you could use a very small frameset so that the frames would go unnoticed.  Anyone else have a better idea?

Heather is right. Here is the code.

<frameset rows="9999999,*" frameborder="0" border=0 framespacing="0">
<frame name="" src="about.html" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="Auto" frameborder="0" noresize framespacing="0">
<frame src="nothing.html">

The second frame here will be of zero size on all browsers. The reason I use rows="9999999,*" is that anything else will give a couple of gray pixels along the edge when using Netscape.

I assume that you are trying to hide the real location.  This will not do what you want if I am correct since the right-click will still show the entire site.

The only way to do this properly is by creating an alias on your server.
