HTML Question: Frames Messing Me Up

Ok...I know frames are dreaded but I'm trying to mess around with them and learn a bit more HTML.

The following page is making me crazy. Why does the heading for the page still read: HTTP 404 Not Found" when the page seems to work just fine?
My Framed Page

Oh....and I'm aware my page sucks badly. This is why I'm trying to learn a few new tags and add some new pages. If anyone else wants to surf my links and suggest anything I'll try to listen and learn.

By "Heading" do you mean the Title? Everything seems fine on my end.

One thing you'll want to do is change your links on the left frame to output to the right.

For example, your first link on the left, pictures of your home theater.

change
PHP Code:

<A HREF="http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/masterofdvd/lst?.dir=/My+Photos/Home+Theater&.src=ph&.order=&.view=t&.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/"
to
PHP Code:
<A HREF="http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/masterofdvd/lst?.dir=/My+Photos/Home+Theater&.src=ph&.order=&.view=t&.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/" target="bottom"

Yeah that would be what I should of said.

Seems like I guessed and fixed that problem but as always another pops up. I didn't even bother to check the links when I out them on. Now I see that when I click the links on the left they come up framed as well. Seems like I have a great deal to learn.

I made the change you suggest even if I have no idea what it will do. Seems to look the same to me but I left it there just in case.

Found a way to open the page in a new window using _window ( God bless HTML for Dummies ) so it's a start. Still would rather have it open in the current page completely unframed.

DOH Now I see what you wanted me to add to my page and why. I had to write it as TARGET before it wold work and now I see what it does. Thanks!
