Re: relative URLS in frames

I'm wondering under what circumstances would someone want to call a url from
'javascript:url'???  What is the point of putting the 'javascript:' in front
of a URL when the relative URL alone will go to the appropriate page?
Please give us the full context or maybe some code to show what you're
trying to do.

Have you tried this?

<A HREF="mynewpage.html" onClick="myfunction()">Click here</A>

This will allow you to execute you function and go to the new page.

If you really want to use 'javascript:mynewpage.html' you could try the next
line.  I haven't tried it as a fix myself but it should work:

 <BASE HREF="http://mysite.com/mypath/";>
