Is there a way for one link in a 3 frame page to replace pages in the two other frames? (Maybe without Java so IE3 will do it too)

Thanks!

What I've done in the past was have the link simply reload the same page but using different html code for each frame.

1. Using META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh (supposedly)

Someone (in this site) hinted that you can attached a TARGET clause to the META command (I've not confirmed this)
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=_URLHere" TARGET="_FrameName">

If the method does work, you can set up chain reaction.
The original link say in Frame3 when clicked will update Frame2

<a href='a.html' target=Frame2>

In a.html, add:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=b.html" TARGET="Frame1">

which will in turn update Frame1 with b.html when a.html is loaded into Frame2.

2. Using JavaScript (IE3 does JavaScript well, they called it JScript)

<script>
function fupdate( url1, url2) {
  //replace frame1 and frame2 with the real frame names

  parent.frame1.location.href= url1;
  parent.frame2.location.href = url2;
}

<a href='javascript:fupdate("b.html","a.html")'>Update the other frames</a>

or

<input type=button value='update' onClick='fupdate("b.html","a.html")'>

See:

For a JavaScript solution look here:
  http://junior.apk.net/~jbarta/tutor/frames/load_two/index.html

For a non-JavaScript solution look here:
  http://junior.apk.net/~jbarta/temp/2frames/master.html

Which to use? For simple pages the non-JavaScript solution is good.
If you want to get more complex and make your pages jump through
hoops and do backflips, use the JavaScript based example as a beginning
reference.
