I'm no friend of frames, quite the opposite, but it is 
illogical and a waste of resources to load the same stuff
again and again. If just a certain part of a page is to change, 
it is reasonable to keep all other parts on the screen, instead of
throwing them out and then reload and redisplay them in exactly 
the same way.
