i have a site that uses <frameset> on index, and it worked fine for months, now however every link that uses target opens in a new window except when using IE.

index.html
CODE

<html>

<head>
<title>Main Page</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="15%,85%" noresize>
<frame src="top.html?name=Dr Whiley Stage 2&file=music/Dr%20Whiley.mp3" name="top">
<frame src="main.html" name="main">
</frameset>

The NAME and TARGET attributes look correct to me. Could you link to a real page showing this behavior?

Now I realized those links go directly to mp3 files, not actual web pages. Audio files will not run in a frame unless the browser supports it (and is configured to allow it). Afraid I have no idea what support is like these days.

it goes to top.html passing the variables of the song title and file location. here is the code

top.html
CODE

<html>

<head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
</head>
<center>
<script type="text/javascript">
var file = location.search.split('file=')[1]
var name = location.search.split('&')[0]
name = name.substring(6);
name = decodeURI(name);

document.write( name + '<br>')
document.write('<embed src="'+file+'" volume=1 height=50 width=465 bgcolor="#000000">')

</script>

</html>

so changed the code to link to a test html instead of an mp3 file and also tried an iframe instead and still opens a new window and not in the frame itself.
even tried to rename the frame still no change.

found the problem, changed the "name" variable to "track" apparently you cant use "name" it will confuse the browser and open a new window.
