I've looked all over for something that works, here is my challenge:

If clients search for employee webpages in our site, they can link directly to those pages.  I've put in some javascript to redirect them back to the frameset page:

if (window == top) top.location.href = "../../index.htm";

but I can't find a way to preserve the page they came from.  I've tried using URL strings (e.g., page.htm?id=thispage.htm,

but I'm not allowed to use server-side scripts to process redirects at the other end...meaning I need javascript that preserves the location of the page the clients were trying to access to begin with, or, some reliable way to read a URL string in javascript (I've found some that are either unreliable or too complicated for me)
