Just so I'm clear, Kynn, I could link to a specific framed-page on your site
if I took extra steps? If this is correct, aren't you limiting the number
of effective links to your site by using frames? {I'm not implying Kynn
uses frames. Simply an hypothetical question.}
As a point of interest, the Canadian Treasury Board Standard 6.6 mandates
using frames only as an alternate format. Users must have a choice between
<FRAME> and <NOFRAME>.
Cheers,
Glenda
