Frame Links

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 your frame code make sure you name the frames...

   <frame src="toolbar.html" name = "toolbar">
   <frame src="content.html" name = "main">

Then use the TARGET value in your links.  E.g. from the toolbar frame you would open a link on the MAIN window thus...

<a href = "content2.html" target = "main">

Hope this helps.
