Hello, I was hoping there is someone here who knows html and will be able to help me out.

I have a page, with two frames, 20%, and 80% of the page, horizontally. I have links on the top and they are updated in the bottom portion. Here is my problem: I have a link in the top frame, and I would like to appear on the same page, but not in the top or bottom frame, but to take up the whole page. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks

When you declare a frame, do <frame .... name="myframename"...>
and if you want links in other frames to always go to that frame do <frame ... target="myframename"...>

I know that, but how can I update the frame, so that the home page, 'covers' both frames.

You need to use _top as the target.

<a href=name.html target=_top>

Thanks the _top worked. I thought that was a typo, but I tested it and it worked.

Thanks again.
