IE is nesting framesets

Threaded View
Hello everybody,

I am looking for a solution for the following problem. A frameset
layout has, besides others, a frame named 'main'. Sometimes, when a
script is loaded into 'main' to store some data, at the end of the
script the user/browser is redicrected to the start page. All other
frames are supposed to keep there content - and they do.
Unfortunately in IE there is a problem that not only the start page is
loaded into main, but the complete frameset.

<frameset rows="163, 1*, 30">
    <frame src="top.php" frameborder=0 noresize="noresize"
    <frameset cols="200, 600">
        <frame name="navi" src="navi.php">
        <frame name="main" src="start.php">

    <frame src="footer.html" framespacing="0" frameborder="0" border="0"
noresize scrolling="no">

Does anybody know that cause of this and maybe has a solution?

Best Regards,

Oliver Block

Get rid of frames asap.

The reason is so obvious that it's not easy realize it -- even though
it is a bit embarassing:

In IE the referer is index.php and in all other browsers it is the
document in 'main'.

Thanks anyway!

Interesting. Which is the referrer, the frame or the frameset. You've
chanced on another way that frames break pages.
