Feedback on:
Re-directing access within Frames #2

Very worth reading

I am trying to find out something (I am not an HTML or javascript expert) and found this article. I did not find what I was looking for (although maybe it was there and I did not recognize it!) but the nature of it led me to think you may know the answer to my question.

I have a page which has a frameset with two frames, left and right, named "NavBar" and "MyContent.

In the left frame I have "navigation" links of the form
<A target="MyContent" HREF="http://somehost.com/somepage.html">Some Host</A>

However, some of the URLs used for the right pane, e.g. http://somehost.com/somepage.html (the source of which is out of my control) have the following javascript in the head:


which results in that URL taking up the entire window, instead of just the frame "MyContent". I would like to disable this. Of course I can disable javascript for the whole browser, but this becomes tedious, because for most of the pages I visit it is fine.

Do you know whether it is possible in a page (e.g. my page, with the frameset) to specify that javascript shall be disabled within the page?

Or perhaps there is something with javascript itself which can b used do this (force a URL to appear in the frame, rather than allow it to force itself to the top), without sending the browser into an infinite loop.

The browser is Netscape Communicator 4.73

Thanks if you have time to answer this...
