SO far as I know the answer is that neither Netscape nor IE current versions
allow support for frames to be turned off.

  As a semi-tangent, is there a way to force IE or Netscape to display a

  "turn
  off" frames?
  
  I'm asking out of theoretical curiosity. If someone designed a functional
  NOFRAMES section conveying all the information of the frames page, would an
  IE/Nets user be stuck with the framey version?
