> I am writing a webpage that will run on other machines that I may or
> may not know about. My page is framed where frame1 controls the
> content of frame2.
> What I have found is that if the page in Frame2 fails to load and I
> get an error page. when I detect an error page I want to set
> frame2.location.href = "about:blank" and then write a temp error page
> until the server becomes available again.
