Sub-Frameset Links -
A popular way to provide online Help is to wrap up HTML files in a
frameset with the Contents in a frame on the left and the content in a
frame on the right. This works very well, except when you want to
establish "context sensitive" connections to the application (such as
a Help button in a dialog). Because the URL line in the browser points
at the frameset file name, you have no easy way to display anything
other than the default page.
In order to display a specific page or anchor within a frameset, you
need to be able to pass information through the URL of the top-most
frameset and have the appropriate page display. There are a number of
ways to do this, the example provided is just one way. Feel free to use
this as it is, or make modifications to work in your particular

frameset Help system.
