Q&A

Q1:What's the difference between the reserved target name top and the reserved target name parent?
A1: The top target name targets the entire window, whereas the parent target name targets the parent of the frame where the link resides. Sometimes these are the same. If the browser window contains several nested framesets, using the top target name loads the linked web page, replacing them all. Using the parent target name in this case, however, simply loads the linked web page in the immediate parent frameset of the frame that contains the link.
Q2:Why do my frames look different in different browsers?
A2: Browsers can display frames with sizes defined in either pixel values or percentages. Some versions of Netscape translate pixel values to percentage values, causing some rounding to occur. You are more likely to get similar results in Internet Explorer and Netscape by actually using percentage values to define the frames. There are also differences between the ways browsers display borders.
