I've done this in documents that use frames by storing the database in the
parent document.  I then access this info when loading the child frames to
determine their contents.  An example can be found at


under the link

        "ATG's Gallery of (Semi) Recent Works"

The Gallery consists of seven html documents (One for  the parent document and
each of its frames, the help window, and its frames) Each time the user pages
through the gallery, the frame documents are re-loaded, displaying different
text and images based on a counter maintained in the parent document.
