Sorry, I have one more question about frames. (I am just learning all this HTML stuff)  I set up my page with a side and top frame.  I have my personal banner on the top section, and my main page in the big section and want to place a navigation bar on the side.  But when I click the link on the side,it goes to that web-page in that frame.  How can I have people click on the link in the side frame and have the page open up in the main section?  Thanks!!

You need to first name your frames, then target your links to the main section.  Like this:

<frame src="navigationbar.html" name="left">
<frame src="mainpage.html" name="main">

Then, set your links like this: <a href="http://www.link.com" target="main">

The new page should then open up in your main frame.
