SUNDAY MORNING Working with Frames 199 displayed just the front page, outside of its frameset, would not be able to access the remaining pages in the site. The solution is to include links on your front page to the other pages in the site, so the front page can stand on its own. Open front.html from the frames folder in your MyHTML folder and add links to the other pages in the site: <p align="center">[<a href="coleridge.html" target="main">Coleridge</a>]&#160; [<a href="byron.html" target="main">Byron</a>]&#160; [<a href="wordsworth.html" target="main">Wordsworth</a>]&#160; [<a href="shelley.html" target="main">Shelley</a>]&#160; [<a href="keats.html" target="main">Keats</a>]&#160; [<a href="tennyson.html" target="main">Tennyson</a>]&#160;<br> [<a href="rbrowning.html" target="main">R.&#160;Browning</a>]&#160; [<a href="ebrowning.html" target="main">E.&#160;Browning</a>]&#160; [<a href="bronte.html" target="main">E.&#160;Bronte</a>]&#160; [<a href="front.html" target="main">Go to Front</a>]</p> <p align="center"><img src="bar_redyellow2.gif" width="85%" height="10" alt="Graphic rule"></p> To see what the page looks like outside of its frameset, save front.html in your text editor and then open it in your browser from the frames folder in your MyHTML folder (see Figure 6.5). At the bottom of the other content pages that are displayed in the "main" frame, links have already been added that link back to the front page. To see an example, with front.html still open in your browser, click on the "E. Bronte" link to open the Emily Bronte page (see Figure 6.6). A link back to the front page will also let any search engine robots that come to the page find their way to the other pages in your site--they can find their way to your front page and then follow the link menu you've inserted there to all of the other pages in your site.
