access 2 pages (frames) without Javascript?

P: n/a
Hello,

I have a web site with 3 frames, top, left and right.

I am wondersing if it is possible to have a button in the top frame
page which when clicked opens one page in the left frame and a
different page in the right frame?

At the moment I have this working using Javascript but oen user is
getting runtime error message when clicking the button ...

Cheers

Geoff

You give 'name' [1] to your FRAMEs [2] then you use 'target' [3] of
the links [4] to designate [5] particular frame. Note that using
links with 'target' attribute is only part of the Transitional DTD
<http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/sgml/loosedtd.html>.

Stan,

thanks for the pointer - I have gone for one frameset replacing
another ...
