displaying content of first frame into second

Please have a look at this scenario. I have two frames on a page dividing page horizontally. First frame has a textbox which shows suggestions like google when user type sth in it. The problem is, the suggestions are displayed till the first frame only, the point (line) where second frame starts, the suggestions go in to background of it (they are there but not visible).

Is there any solution for it?

I could solve problem by removing frames but frames are very much mandatory and removing could be way much rework if at all it works without frame.

TIA.

Design your suggestion list to have a scroller or return less suggestions or redesign the site.

Suggestion list has scroller and user can scroll down blindly and select any item also... but I want to show (should be visible also to user) ALL THE SUGGESTIONS (they will not be more than 10).

I suppose, I will have to get rid of frame for it... :roll:

If your JavaScript is good and the other frame is in your domain, you can write the div onto the other frame, but it will b a lot of code. (And I have my own project to worry about! It is after midnight and I am still working...)
