: I took Martin's advice on setting a particular frame's content when calling the frameset (http://www.irt.org/script/frame.htm#151) and have ran into a slight problem. When I call the frameset, I sometimes need to pass a URL with the frameset that does not end in the .htm extension. Offline, Netscape 4 attempts to open these files with various applications, as opposed to the browser I'm using to test. Is this an offline security thing I can't prevent? It's basically for convenience sake, for it's making testing rather difficult.
This sounds like you need to set a mime type so that the browser knows what to do with the required extension. You can do this on your own browser - I think.
I am not an expert on mime types!
