problem with frames

I am having a problem with my html code.
I have a webpage that has to frames. One frame has links and the other has
content.
When I click on a link the new webpages open within the selected frame and
not within the entire browser.
Any help?

give a name to your right frame

<frameset>
<frame name="left"...>
<frame name="right"...>
</frameset>

Then in the links, specify the target with the target attribute
<a href="..." target="right">

Well, yes, if someone is pointing a gun an you so that you cannot get rid
of slimy frames altogether.
<frameset>
<frame name="left"...>
<frame name="right"...>
</frameset>


How informative will the names "left" and "right" be to a person using
a speech browser, or a text browser that effectively implements frame
elements as links? Names of frames _can_ be visible or audible to users,
and should be chosen according to meaning, not position.

I hate frames too, both as a web developer and as a web user.
<frameset>
<frame name="left"...>
<frame name="right"...>
</frameset>

Right, I was only showing how it works; up to Ioannis to see how the frames
(if any) should be named.
BTW, what a chance, right now I'm reading your article:

Thanks for that work, it clarifies a lot of things.
