In this exercise, you will modify a frame page using some of the FRAMESET and FRAME attributes discussed earlier; you will also add a NOFRAMES tag to that frame page. In addition, you will create a link which will erase the frameset by setting the TARGET attribute of an anchor tag equal to "_top". All the files that you will need to complete this exercise are available for download at the bottom of this page.
Note: The set of exercise files below provide the "solution" to Exercise Three, if you care to check your work from the previous exercise.
Note: Web browsers will not completely reload frame pages when you hit the "Reload" or "Refresh" buttons. To FORCE a browser to completely reload a frame page (or any page, for that matter), you must take the following steps:
Netscape Communicator: Hold down the "shift" key while pressing the "Reload" button to initiate a "force" reload.
Internet Explorer: Hold down the "option" key (Mac) or the "control" key (PC) while pressing the "Refresh" button to initiate a "force" reload.
