layer over 2 frames
want to create a javascript layer that is visible on 2 frames

 3:00 pm on Mar 6, 2002 (gmt 0)

is there any possibility to put one layer in top of 2 frames?

can you define a visible layer in the frameset?

please help me!

As far as I know, no.

A frame is much like a separate window and layers can only appear within its windows boundaries. You can script to control a layer in a frame from another frame which might partially solve your problem.

Welcome to Webmaster World, northk.

A few weeks back we wrestled with a version of this question. Joshie76 expressed the consensus opinion - frames are like separate windows, and you can't straddle two frame with one object.
