First of all, thank you to all who responded to my last post. My frames and page are working great.
My next question is, I have decided to build a completly different layout for browsers that don't work with Frames. My layout is baiscally 2 pages working as 1. I will try to explain this as best I can.
I figured out the noframes tags, so when you open my page and your browser doesn't handle frames, it brings you to my Layout page-( nfra_home.html) on this page there is a link that will open a sized window-(nav_v.html) the sized window acts as the navigator, with all the links on my page. My question is, I want to use the nfra_home.html page as the main page, meaning when you click a link on the navigator page it opens in the nfra page. I tried target="nfra_home.html" but that opens a new window. So what target should I use?
Example of a link on my navagation page
(this link should open my Picture home page, and it does, it just opens an extra page)
<a href="pcs_home.html" target="nfra_home.html"><img src="pc_button.jpg" border="0" alt="Picture Page"></a>

Can you tell me if my info is correct,
Netscape V.2 and IE V.3 are the first versions that work with frames?

I think its those two, yes.
We are talking about browsers over five years old, here, tho.
this is interesting reading: http://webstandards.org/act/campaign/buc/
Is this an intranet thing where your company has 'standardized' on an old browser? urgh.
I'm lucky. If we are not up to date in my company, they tell us to upgrade

Thanks everyone, though I have one more question on this subject.
I thought the idea was good, to use a smaller window for the navigation, and a larger one for the main page.
Does anyone else think so, or is that just to much?

Personally, I have never really used either frames or multiple windows. There is too much to go wrong with different browsers, different monitors etc.
Sometimes keeping it simple can be the best thing to do. Just my opinion, tho. Your site may end up better than anything I have done...
