Frame busting, more important than ever before.

If you don't run a frame buster, you may want to read what can potentially be done to your users:

Took me a little while to understand what you were trying to say. You are implying using the @ trick talked about on a framed page that shows the actual content of another site. So the user actually thinks they are visiting CNN or whatever, when in actuality they are visiting some other site, but getting the content of CNN. The framing page could do something malicious or annoying and most users would assume that CNN was doing it.

Can you think of any way to bust frames using pure HTML? I don't like JavaScript on my pages, and it isn't effective if JavaScript is turned off. I've thought about it and can't come up with a way without JavaScript.

Oh! I guess I dropped the #7 name anchor on the original link. That would make it difficult to figure out.

No html frame busters that I am aware of - and I agree, I don't care for js on the page myself. Especially when it involves what could appear to be redirects to a search engine.

Maybe we need to approach the w3c with a proposal for a way of busting frames for the next version of html (actually xhtml)! Seems to me that a site out to opt-in to frames rather than opt-out (or as currently, opt-accept-any-site-that-wants-to-frame-me).
