Removing Top Frame Leaving Bottom Frame Intact

I have a frameset with two frames (top & bottom), I need to add a link in the top frame to remove, close, dispose, collaspe (whatever) the top frame; however, I need the content of the bottom frame frame to stay intact as form data is filled in by the user from data displayed in the top frame. ie: the bottom frame page cannot reload, unless there is another way to retain it's data.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

You should ask this question in the HTML and JavaScript forum

Agreed. Moved accordingly.

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

You can try manipulating the sizes of the frames in the frameset with Javascript, but that's not something I've ever tried.
What I have done, and quite successfully, is to use iframes in a normal page (no frameset, no frames) and manipulate the sizes of the iframes.
