I have two nested frame definitions. The first "art1f.htm" defines two 
frames

<frameset cols="130,*">
     <frame name="left" src="nieuws/logonavi.htm" frameborder="no"
noresize marginheight=0 marginwidth=0 scrolling="off">
     <frame name="right" src="art2f.htm" frameborder="no"
scrolling=auto>

The logonavi frame contains the navbar, "art2f.htm" is itself a frame 
definition

frameset cols="*,155"  bordercolor="#FFFFFF">
	<frame name="middle" src="agenda/article.htm" frameborder="no" noresize>
	<frame name="contents" src="agenda/contents.HTM" frameborder="no" 
MARGINHEIGHT=0 noresize>
</frameset>


The contents.htm is positioned on the right. In it is a list of articles. 
One can choose one.
In this way I created a 3 collumn structure. On the left navbar for 
navigation through the
 site, in the middle a data field, on the right a contents field, with 
the contents of the
 different parts of the site.

Check it out at http://www.cultimo.nl and go to "nieuws" or "Agenda". Or 
for the
 englishspeaking community it is easier to go directly to
 http://www.tref.nl/groningen/cultimo/nieuws/49_116f.htm
to see a working example. The names I use for the frame deffinitions are 
slightly different,
 but I translated them from Dutch.

 Normally I choose to place an article in the "middle" frame. Lets say <a 
href="article.htm"
 target="middle">link text</a> But, when the article contains big photo's 
I choose to place
 it in the parent frame (in this case the "right" frame from the first 
framedefinition). The
 syntax would be <a href="article.htm" target="_parent">link text</a>

This works fine in my N2 and N3 (as well as in MSIE). But not in N4.04 on 
the mac. Somehow 
it reads the target="_parent" as a target="_top": It uses the whole page 
to display the
 article. It doesn't use a new page (which happens when one misspells the 
word "_parent" or
 when one uses capitals, or when one uses "_blank") 

I don't know if it has got something to do with the N version I got, or 
with the fact that
 I'm a mac user (ppc). I've got the impression that one has to name the 
specific target, but
 I'm not sure. 

Thanks
