I want to make a home page (index.html) with two choices - English and Chinese.
After enter English or Chinese, the pages will go to Frames.
Under English, I have upper frame(upper_frame.html), left frame (left_eng.html), and main frame (open_eng.html).  Under Chinese, it is the same structure (upper_frame_chinese.html, left_chinese.html, and open_chinese).  The left frames works as guide.  the upper frames display some info.  The main frames are my main pages.  

I want to be able to go back to the home page (index.html) by select the home page link in the upper frames and left frames.   The problem is that when I select the home page link in the upper frames or left frames, the home page is displayed only in the upper frames or left frames but the other old frames are not cleared.  How can I get back to my home page and clear all the old frames at the same time.

Below are my html files.

index.html
<html>
<BODY LEFTMARGIN="0" TOPMARGIN="0" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0">
      <TABLE WIDTH = "100%" HEIGHT = "50%" BGCOLOR = "#ffffff">

                  <td width="25%" height="30%"><a href="english.html" style="border-style: solid; border-color: #800080"><font face = "Arial" size = "8" color = "#0000FF">English</font></a></td>
                  <td width="30%" height="30%"><a href="chinese.html" style="border-style: solid; border-color: #800080"><font face = "Arial" size = "8" color = "#0000FF">Chinese</font></a></td>

Add the target attribute to reload the entire frameset:

<font face="Arial" size ="2"><a href = "index.html" target="_top">Home Page</font></a></b>
