add an alert as shown below ... what does it reveal for that link?

<SCRIPT language='javascript'>
var mainpage=location.search.substring(1);
alert(mainpage);
if ( mainpage != "" )
setTimeout('top.main2.location=mainpage',100);
else
setTimeout('top.main2.location="main.htm"',100);
</script>

also, I would move this entire section below the last </frameset> tag to avoid timing issues.

The answer is this:

<SCRIPT language='javascript'>
var mainpage=location.search.substring(1) + location.hash;
if ( mainpage != "" )
setTimeout('top.main2.location = mainpage',100);
else
setTimeout('top.main2.location="main.htm"',100);
</script>

You are not getting the hash value by using the search property. By using the location.hash, you will get if any the hash value inclusive of the pound sign #.
