I have 2 frame. Frame A is for navigation button including back button that works exactly like the browser.
and Frame B is the content of the website.

Question:
How to create a back button that can go to the previous page of the frame B?

TIA

It will work if you load a new page into it first...if you are opening the frameset and try to go back immediately...there's nothing in the history of the frame...as soon as there is...it will be no problem....just tried it out myself..and it works...
