I am hard coding a navigation menu into a SharePoint site.  I would like the user to be able to click on a link in the navigation menu, that will then open up its destination(a PowerPoint) in a frame/webpart within the same SharePoint page.

How can I do this?

You can target an iframe from a hyperlink: http://javascript.about.com/library/bltarget.htm

However, you wont be able to in the standard SharePoint navigation, you would have to add the link manually (either in the page content or on a master page).

self.frames['thatframe'].location.href = 'page.htm';

where 'thatframe' is the ID of the iframe and 'page.htm' is the URL to browse to inside the frame.
