You could use javascript to load both frames:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function load(url1, url2)
Then call it like this:
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="load('somepage.htm','someotherpage.htm');">do now</a>
Frames can also be referred to ordinally.
Hopefully that will help to solve the problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
