Not sure exactly what you are saying, but if it is a "BACK" button to use in
frames (or non-frames), try this:



function backframe2()


(Note, I use frames[2].history so that my "display frame" backs up one.  My
BACK button sits in another frame, so I have to specify which frame to
BackUp the href for.)

Then simply link a BACK icon to it with

<A HREF="back.html" TARGET="display"> 
<img border=0 src="/icons/back.gif" align=top></A> 

Is this pretty clear?
