With Microsofts implementation of floating frames which can be used and defined within any window using the <IFRAME> tag (see Source Files), it is only possible to access the frame by the frames array.
For example if we have two frames called display and nav, where display contains a floating frame called floater it is possible to change the contents of the floater frame from within the display using:
parent.display.frames.location.href = 'newfile.htm'
but NOT with:
parent.display.floater.location.href = 'newfile.htm'
Which would cause the error floater is not an object.
