Alrighty, I've just started a new webpage using Iframes and it was going along quiet nicely untill I came by a little glitch.

The way that I have my page layed out is I have my main index page with my menu, links, and a midi loop in the background. I then have my Iframe page in the center that will be used to display my content. The idea was too click on the links to display a diffrent Iframe in my content area while having my main page open and my midi continuing to play. However, I just found out that I don't know how to link to my Iframes to display the new content when the link is clicked without leaveing my main page and stopping the midi loop. Is there some kind of code out there that I need in order to get my web page to do what I want?

You need to use the target attribute in the link using the name corresponding to the name of the iframe.

This is your iframe:
<iframe name="whatever"...

The link would like like this:
<a href="page.html target="whatever">Link Text</a>
