Project III: Making Sure Your Frames Site Shows Up in Frames

After working through a fairly complex project like the last one, you should enjoy working on this quick and easy project. One of the problems with building your site using frames is that people searching for your site on search engines are more often than not brought directly to the content page instead of to the frameset that contains the content page. They are often left looking at a page with no navigation and are unable to leave that individual page. There is a way around this problem, however, and it's going to be our next project for this site. As usual, the boss was the first person to find out about this problem through his AOL-using mother, and now he's throwing a small tizzy, so let's get cracking on it right away.

There are two parts to this project. First, we need to be able to tell if the user viewing the site is just looking at the content page sans the frames, and second, if that is the case, we need to reload the page within the proper frameset. Let's check out how we are going to tell if the user is looking at the site properly.
