targeting frames with javascript

2 New Member
Have pity on me.. i have been doing html, css, javascript squarely over 2 years... and am now doing a family project.. in my project i have decided to use a context menu script, its a menu that pretty much allows for when you right click on a page it shows you different links that the standard right click menu, link here:
What it does exactly is opens a new window with the link that you have chosen, on the link that i have given above the demo is in the page, right click anywehre, and you'll see... now.. like is said it opens with a right click,... the problem that i am having is that when a window opens...it opens in a new window... i want it to open in one of my frames, here is the code snippet: (thats the original that i didnt change )

[HTML]<div id="ie5menu" class="skin0" onMouseover="hi ghlightie5(even t)" onMouseout="low lightie5(event) " onClick="jumpto ie5(event)" display:none>
<div class="menuitem s" href="http://www.google.com" >google</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m/new.htm" target="newwin" >What's New?</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m/hot.htm">What's Hot?</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://wsabstract.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi">M essage Forum</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m/faqs.htm">FAQs</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m/submitscript.ht m">Submit</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="mailto:dyn amicdrive@yahoo .com">Email Us</div>
[/HTML](main is the name of one of the frames that i am using)
i change the

[HTML]<div class="menuitem s url="http://www.google.com" >google</div>[/HTML](which works by the way) to
[HTML]<div class="menuitem s url="http://www.google.com" target="main">g oogle</div>[/HTML] (main is a legit name of one of my frames) however that doesnt seem to work the window still launches in a new window. i have even tried to delete the whole <div> </div> and replace it all with [HTML]<a href="http://www.google.com" target="main">g ogle</a>[/HTML] but that just breaks the menu altogether,...

one person on a html forum told me that the problem is not in my html code... but in the operating javascript... the menu is not running an external javascript code, however there is an internal javascript functions, but i dont know how to change it to open in a frame, i am posting the body of the document below:

[HTML]<div id="ie5menu" class="skin0" onMouseover="hi ghlightie5(even t)" onMouseout="low lightie5(event) " onClick="jumpto ie5(event)" display:none>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m">Dynamicdrive .com</div>
<div class="menuitem s" url="http://dynamicdrive.co m/new.htm" target="newwin" >What's New?</div>

i've changed the last line (window.locatio n=firingobj.get Attribute("url" )
to the following:

I´m new to ASP.Net. My workmate has some experience with it. He claimed that in ASP.Net working with frames is much simpler than it was ASP. I asked explanation but he couldn't give me such. (a button inside a-tag with attribute target isn't anything new relating ASP.Net, its same old HTML). He claimed that you could change another page´s controls´s property´s value from another frame by using this method: ' Page "Bottom"
