This is impossible to do in the normal context of the WWW, since
security prevents a script running in one frame from accessing the URL
of a page in another frame if that page exists on a different domain.

It is possible with browser plugins, but if you are going to start down
that route, you might as well build a validator into the plugin itself,
since that would be more efficient.

http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/ for example.

directly to me)
