I have a frameset page that I would like to run the javascript function setInterval.

window.setInterval("reload('http://www.google.com')", 5000);
function reload(url) {
        window.frames['forum'].src=url;
}


But It doesn't work as I expect, nothing happens.  I've attached the whole page in case my problem is not limited to just the javascript, but somewhere else in the html.
What did I miss or do wrong?
Thanks.

Since the source page is not refreshing, the frame will not refresh either -- i.e. nothing happens.  

In the frame page, simply put this in the HEAD of the document --

<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5000; url=myFramesetPage.html">

That will reload the frame page in the frame every 5000 seconds.

Yup the problem was I can't do this from the frameset page, it has to be done from within the frame.
Thanks.
