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 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!!!

Hi Richard, welcome to the Ranch!
You should be advised that it is considered a no-no to post the same question in multiple forums (you also posted this in Distributed Java). Multiple posts wastes peoples' time entering redundant answers.
Please choose a single forum to enter your question.
And don't worry too much if you get it wrong. One of the friendly forum bartenders will move your post if it is in the wrong place.
This post, for example, would be better served in the HTML/Javascript forum.
