Mousetrapping - How do you get rid of it?

Hi all

There's probably a simple answer to this, hence I'm posting it in the 'novices' forum. My homepage comprises 3 frames which load simultaneously. But the flippin' guys who designed it have incorporated this irritating mousetrap thingy. When you click the back button, the page simply refreshes. There's no way back. Aaaaaggggh! Because of this, Overture won't accept any submissions. So how do I cure it?

Any suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation

Probably JavaScript redirection to force content into frames. Stickymail me your address and I'll take a quick scan for anything obvious.

For the sake of completeness, I'll let you know what the problem was. The original designers designed the site for 2 different screen resolutions. There was a script that re-directed the user, depending on which resolution they were working to. Now removed! Thanks for the help.
