Re-directing access within Frames #2

Very worth reading

An excellent article, though I did n't quite understand why you needed the invisible ergi87143548 frame in your example, though this may be because I didn't read the article thouroughly enough.

However (and this is possibly the important bit), I think I've seen a small bug in your script. It uses the code

var newURL = self.location.protocol + '//' + self.location.host + self.location.pathname.substring(0,self.location.pathname.lastIndexOf('/')) + '/frameset.html';

to generate the new URL. I suspect that this won't work on HTTP servers not running on port 80 - there may be a need to add a ":portnumber" in the URL, though without a spec. for location.host I can't be entirely sure.

Supplimentary comment; I can't find a reference or a link to a reference to describe the JavaScript object model on irt.org. If I could, then I would be more sure on the above. A definition to the object model would be a huge benefit, IMHO.
