But it might not be possible to jump directly into the middle of a series of frames -- they may be generated by CGI programs, for example. However, consider a URL such as http://www.some.where/path/to/frametop.html##body=url/of/body.html which a hypothetical browser might take to mean  load http://www.some.where/path/to/frametop.html  load any subframe documents, but if there is a frame or target window called "body", do not load it  load url/of/body.html into subwindow or subframe "body", using the specification in frametop.html if ther is one, or creating the window if there is not. I _think_ this would be a reasonable sort of interpretation of how one might want things to behave.
