Re-directing access within frames - Revisited

Very worth reading

Interesting article - too bad it is so difficult to handle all the different browsers.

I am attempting to solve another similar problem with frames. My site sells CDs and is sometimes incorporated within another site as a frame (see www.hotpoop.com and www.75music.com).

When it gets to the credit card SSL page, the secure lock usually does not display since the other frames (outside of my control) are not SSL. This is a common problem among many sites.

My solution is to determine if I am framed and in SSL mode and if so, pop up a window to accept the credit card. This window will have the lock. Once entered, the window is closed and returns to the normal window.

This is done with a combination of server-side code and client-side.

I prefer not to remove the frames but do so for the browsers I can't easily support (X11, MSN, AOL, WebTV for now).

Any feedback would be appreciated.
