Hi -

I need to create instructions in a vertical left frame that pertain to an HTTPS page that I need to load in the right frame from a 3rd party (totally unrelated & different domain) site.

The two frames do NOT need to communicate with each other.

When I have coded it up as

<html>
<frameset cols = '18%, *'>
<frame src ="stpByStp.html" noresize='noresize' name='instructions' />
<frame src ='https://otherdomain.com/' noresize='noresize' name='main' />
</frameset>
</html>

The other domain breaks out... I am wondering if this is doable? Or is the other page code so that it breaks out?

Thanks.

Yes, it is most always code on the other page that makes it break out of your frameset. Framebrreaker (framebuster) code is common on sites who do not want to show up inside someone else's frame.

Right, I understand that but is there a way to make sure that, that is what is happening here?

Look at the source of the site in question. That sort of script may be in the <head>.

Isn't there an issue with inserting an HTTPS page (secured) inside an HTTP (unsecured) page? Seem to recall the two frames will no longer communicate with each other. But then again, it's been a LONG time since I looked into frameset!
