I'm a little confused in reading your description.
Let's see if I have some sort of grasp.
You will have a frame containing a navigation bar, for argument sake, lets
assume it's on the top, or "banner frame". The other frame, or "main frame"
would then contain a page that would maybe break into another set of frames?
If this is the case, just have your main frame call another frames page.
This is a trick I learned a long time ago to update more than one frame with
a navigation selection. It can get real confusing, and you need to make
sure all of your frame names are unique.
The main page is a frames page containing a navigation frame (name="nav")
and a display frame (name="main"). Your nav frame loads nav.html. Your
display frame loads a welcome page, welcome.html, with links that may not
show on your main navigation page. When you select a link, you then load
another frames page in the display area.
The first page would look like a 2 section frames page, and the following
pages would look like a 3 or more section frames page.
You could easily go back to the 2 section display by targeting the "main"
name, or update the displayed area of the 3 section by targeting the
You can get the idea from http://www.yelavich.com . I think most of the
layout is still in the format of the original format.
