If you want to change both frames at the same time, you can have your link actually redraw the whole frameset...
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>
<head><title>Your Page Title</title></head>
<frameset name="hints" rows="*,60" >
<frame src="thescript.pl" name="top">
<frame src="thescript.pl" name="bottom">
And then let thescript.pl fill in both frames at the same time.
If you do this, then the script will have to run twice to get the output for the two frames. If the script runs quick, that might be acceptable.
If the script will be expensive to run, you might want to change it to call the script once, which will put your data in a temporary file, and then print the frameset to call that file twice.
