Hello,

Changing 2 iframe sources with one click would require javascript.

<html>
<body>
<script language="javascript" type="application/javascript">
function framechange(x,y){
    document.getElementById('iframe1').src = x;
    document.getElementById('iframe2').src = y;
}
</script>

<p>
<a href="#" onclick="framechange('image.jpg','content.html');">Click here to change iframes</a>
</p>

<iframe id="iframe1" src="" width="250" height="250" ></iframe>
<br /><br />
<iframe id="iframe2" src="" width="250" height="250" ></iframe>

</body>
</html>

The parameters are relative path to the main document.  You can put an absolute path in there if you wanted as well.

What if I had two iframez "iframez" and "iframezTOC" and I wanted one link "Read" to change both the iframez?

Would I change this? I cant seem to get it to work right.

document.getElementById('iframe1').src = x;
document.getElementById('iframe2').src = y;

Here is the site I left the java script but took out the link code so it would work for now... I'm trying to make the "HTML" link on the right open both iframez at once... The larger reading pane is called "iframez" and the navigation is called "iframezTOC". If you open the PDF link or search link you will see that the HTML link needs to open both the chapter.HTML and the table of contents HTML. Thank you for your help

Thanks for posting, but since you took the link code out, I can't see the error.  Looking at the anchor tag for View HTML though, this should work:
<a href="#" onclick="framechange('Chapter1/1Info.html','Chapter1/1TOC.html');"> View HTML</a>

If this failed last time like this, maybe the arguments are pointing to the wrong path.  You might need to make the path absolute:
<a href="#" onclick="framechange('/lettis/ceus-ssc-2/Report/Chapter1/1Info.html','/lettis/ceus-ssc-2/Report/Chapter1/1TOC.html');"> View HTML</a>
