searched the docs using the keywords "session id", looked under "Tree
Design", and found this:  "If you are using frames, source all frame panes
containing Interchange links from an initial page served by Interchange. If
you don't do this, the user may have multiple session IDs depending on which
frame generated the link."

Interchange directory structure.  If the frameset page is index2.html, does
your advice mean that I place a tag somewhere (in the header or body?) in
the source code of the frameset page that is exactly this:  [area

Your generousity, and that of all contributors to this list, is a matter of
great admiration by those of us who depend on this resource as the place to
go after we "have exhausted all other possibilities".  Thank you.
