Below are installation instructions for inserting HVMenu in a frames page, where the main menu resides in one frame, and the resulting submenus drop down in another. For an example, see: http://www.burmees.nl/

Step 1: Create frameset

Create frameset with coloms
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Title</title>
</head>
<frameset cols="150,*" framespacing='0' frameborder='0' border=0>
<frame frameborder='0' framespacing='0' src="MyNavigation.htm" noresize scrolling='no' name="MyFrameOne"></frame>
<frame frameborder='0' framespacing='0' src="MyMain.htm" name="MyFrameTwo"></frame>
</frameset>
</html>

Create frameset with rows
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Title</title>
</head>
<frameset rows="150,*" framespacing='0' frameborder='0' border=0>
<frame frameborder='0' framespacing='0' src="MyNavigation.htm" noresize scrolling='no' name="MyFrameOne"></frame>
<frame frameborder='0' framespacing='0' src="MyMain.htm" name="MyFrameTwo"></frame>
</frameset>
</html>

Step 2: Inserting necessary codes

i) Add the below script in the <BODY> of MyframeOne, immediately following the tag:

<html>
<head>your header html</head>
<body>
<script type='text/javascript'>
//HV Menu- by Ger Versluis (http://www.burmees.nl/)
//Submitted to Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
//Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com for this script and more

function Go(){return}</script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='exmplmenu_var.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='menu_com.js'></script>

your html
</body>
</html>
(Where MyFrameOne is the name of the navigation frame.)

ii) Then, add the below code inside the <BODY> tag itself of MyFrameTwo, as follows:

<html>
<head>your header html</head>
<body onload="javascript:{if(parent.frames[0]&&parent.frames['MyFrameOne'].Go)parent.frames['MyFrameOne'].Go()}">
your html
</body>
</html>
(Where MyFrameOne is the name of the navigation frame.)
