I have added an iframe to my home page which opens an external page within it by default.

I have placed some links near the iframe with links to other pages and targeted them to open within the iframe. These links work as expected within firefox but nothing happens when I try the page in internet explorer 5 or 6. Where am I going wrong?

A portion of my html:

<iframe name="FRAME1" src="DEFAULT-PAGE.HTML">

<a href="PAGE1.HTML" target="FRAME1"> page1 </a>
<a href="PAGE2.HTML" target="FRAME1"> page1 </a>
<a href="PAGE3.HTML" target="FRAME1"> page1 </a>
