Linking into a page within a framed site

Is it possible to:
1. link into a single page within a framed site; and
2. still have the frames around that page?

... like some sort of query string with the target page identified in it?

This is usually acheived with a small javascript on the target page.

The framed site owner essentially has three choices:

1. Take a request to one frame in a frameset and "reframe" it with a little javascript (as mentioned above).
2. Redirect all requests to one frame in a frameset back to the default start page.
3. Allow direct requests to be served without the accompanying frameset.

Option 2 is common even though users find it obnoxious. It's how you get links like this:
Go to yourfavoritewebforum.com then click on forums, then click on "The Webmaster World" (it's a blue button near the middle), then find the text "Website Technology Issues" that's a link, click that...
