frames

Below is some code that has really got me stumped.  This page is loaded from a page with frames and I need a new window to load and this page to be loaded.  It woks fine in IE but in NS it locks up NS after loading it in the main body of the originating document.  I am in a rush to get this blasted thing fixed within the next 3 hours, (deadline).  Thanks for the quick response in advance.
I posted it in here and JAVASCRIPT so first to answer with a good fix gets the points.
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Welcome</TITLE>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
if (window != window.top)
       top.location.href = location.href;
</SCRIPT>
<FRAMESET BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0 FRAMEBORDER=0 COLS="152,*">
<FRAME NAME="left" SRC="left_agentmasterborder.html" SCROLLING="auto" MARGINWIDTH="2" MARGINHEIGHT="1" FRAMEBORDER="no" BORDER="0" NORESIZE>
<FRAME NAME="body" SRC="body_aindex.html" SCROLLING="auto" MARGINWIDTH="2" MARGINHEIGHT="1">
</FRAMESET>
</HEAD>
</HTML>

It sounds as if all that you are doing is loading a new left and right page to an existing window that already has 2 frames declared, why not just open a new window in each frame rather than creating a new frameset.

For example after the button is clicked and validation is ok you would use something like the code below in your redirect function.

      parent.left.location.href = "left_agentmasterborder.html";
      parent.body.location.href = "body_aindex.html";

instead of
top.location.href = location.href;
use
top.window.location = location.href;

It appears that this script will "pop" the window out of frames if anyone tries to link to it in their frames.  All of my web pages do it, although a little differently.

Why putting your <FRAMESET> in your <HEAD>
It must be:
 <HTML>
<HEAD> ... </HEAD>
<FRAMESET ... >
..
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>

FRAMEBORDER=0 only works in NS or IE (don't know). FRAMEBORDER=no works in the other one. So put both of them in your <FRAME> declaration.

Sorry about the confusion but TECBUILDER yesterday had the right answer.  The problem was with me not putting the code in  the right place.  So I am opening this for TECBUILDER to get the credit for.  

Thank you all for such an inflow of great ideas for a strange situation.
