tags attribute points. when you want to replace the contents of a frame
you can designate the location by using the target attribute, such as:
<a href="home.htm" target="main">WELCOME</a>
It is easy to see this line of html will cause the word WELCOME to
become a hyperlink to load the home.htm page. The target attribute will
cause that page to be loaded into the frame designated as "main." If
you are not working with a frameset with a defined "main" frame you
will receive an error. The page you spoke of above listed reserved
window objects that exist in all frame cases wether you have defined a
frameset or not.
As the page also indicated "target" can be used to designate an
alternative window to recieve the content.
I have never seen the designator _top used as you have shown in
previous messages. I am not calling it wrong but there is no logic
because "target" is not an attribute of frame or frameset.

This is what I found ... (might not be proper but is less complicated)
the frame src tag i.e. <FRAME SRC="lesson0.htm" NAME="main" frameborder=1
border=0 TARGET="_top"> TARGET="_top" tag cause the prior frames to be
dropped and the new frame1.htm to be loaded ... I think that this works if
you are going to another site but have not fully tested it myself just know
that it stops the frames from following to the next hyperlink ...
