Clear the contents of a frame/iframe?

Hi, all!! Trying to clear the contents of a frame (or iframe), and can't
seem to find anything that works. Tried:
* innerHTML
* outerHTML
* document.close(); (with a number of different frame order prefixing)
* location.href='about:blank';

Anyone have any ideas for me? :) I essentially need to clear the content
WITHOUT doing any kind of post/redirect from the window.

Thanks!
Jack

More detail about what you have done would be helpful. How did you use
innerHTML? What location did you change?

If "windowRef" is a reference to the window object of the frame you want
to close, then
windowRef.document.open();
windowRef.document.close();
should do it.

Exactly!
"open: Open a document stream for writing. If a document exists in the
target, this method clears it."

windowRef.document.close();
should do it.
