I have a hangover which does not help, I have a 2 frame main page with a tool bar at the top (frame 1) and the pages below (frame 2 ). When I link from the tool bar I can only make that frame (frame 1) change or open a new window. How do you make a link in one frame change the contents of the other ? and the link frame remain the same. Any help would be greatly appretiated.

In the frame page give the second frame a good NAME tag, then on your link give TARGET="framename"

Hope it helps, good luck with the head ;-)

I think I'm just being dense, but I have <a href="index.htm"
        target="index"> in the tool bar frame and <name="index"> in the main frame, but when I click the link it opens a new window ? what am I doing wrong?

Thanks
