DOM HTML --- Retriving .src? .target?

I have 3 frames. Frame 1 changes the main frame 2 content with a ".target" method. How do I read the NEW src/target(?) of the main frame from frame 3?

"parent.document.getElementById('main').src" returns my default value (the main frame src=splash.htm) no matter what is actually loaded in the main frame.

Thanks,
Kevin C

have you tried window.parent.frames["main"].location.href or window.parent.frames["main"].document.location.href?

I don't remember whether the frame's name must be "main" in order for the to work, or if the id is enough.
