Get floating frame to fill remaining space

Hi,

I have 3 floating frames on a webpage that split the page into 3 horizontal areas. The first 2 frames are fixed heights but I would like the last frame to fill the remaining height in the window. Does anyone know how to do this?

<IFRAME SRC="TopFrame.html" WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=250 MARGINWIDTH=0 >
<IFRAME NAME="TableHeading" WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100 noresize>
<IFRAME NAME="MainWindow" WIDTH=100% >

I know that using non-floating frames you can do this in the surrounding FRAMESET (250,100,*) but this doesn’t work for floating frames.

The reason I can’t do this with non-floating frames is that my frame page is called with FORM data and it has some dynamic elements to submit this data to one of the frames.
