How can I refresh both frames in a page on clicking on a button in one of the pages ? (Its something like a message box, I enter data in one frame, and press an update button, the updated stuff is to come on the second frame.)

just a suggestion.. you can try it anyway...
step by step..

1. divide your page into 2 .. give name... (eg: 'up' for title and 'down')
2. divide your 'down' frame into 2 (eg: 'left' for button & 'right'  for the info)
3. now you have 4 frame up, down, left, right,  but only 3 frame appear because the 'down' frame contain 'left' and 'right'...
4. in your html form tag include target=down
    (eg: <form method=post target=down> )
   so changes will happen to frame 'down' which contain your 'left' & 'right' frame.
5. hope you can understand what i wrote   :-)
