Has anyone come up with a good work-around for having a link in SMIL modify the
contents of a web-page that is embedded into. Current solutions i have found are
having JavaScript query the real players position, then loading frames based on
that, or possible having an <a> tag in SMIL send a result to an Active Server
Page, which in turn sets variables on an invisible HTML frame, which an internal
Javascript checks to determine when frames should be loaded.

Both those options are very clumsy and bulky work-arounds. Has anyone come up
with a better way to coordinate smil timing and linking with HTML?

Let me know

Jeremy
