Creating Links within Frames Pages

When creating hyperlinks on a frames page, the link can be in one frame with its destination set to open in another. You may, for example, use the left frame as a table of contents with the links opening in the main frame. The frame in which the link destination appears is called the target frame. This document will explain how to change the target frame for a hyperlink created in a frames page.

NOTE: This document assumes that you have already created a basic hyperlink within the desired frame. For more information about creating hyperlinks, refer to Linking to Pages in Your Collection, Linking to Internet Resources, Specialty Links, and Creating Target Links.
