I need it to open a new window!!

Hello! I am in the process of designing a website using frames. I've never used frames before and quite honesty I don't really know anything about it.
The first "column" on my page is where I have my "links" located. When you click on the link, it brings up the page, but it's only the left side of the page. If you want to see the whole page you have to keep scrolling over. How do I make it to where when you click on the link it opens up an entirely different window all together?

RE: I need it to open a new window!!

first off here is the code used in the left frame so that the pages open in the right frame.

[a href="frame2.html" target="frame2"]Frame 2[/a][br]
[a href="page1.html" target="frame2"]Page 1[/a][br]
[a href="page2.html" target="frame2"]Page 2[/a]

replace the [ and ] with < and >

to open a new window the code looks like this

[a href="page1.html" target="blank"]Page 1[/a]

(a href="link.htm" TARGET="_blank")your link(/a)

will open a file called link.htm in a new window

(a href="link.htm" TARGET="name_of_frame")your link(/a)

will open a file called link.htm in the frame with the name "name_of_frame".

Hope this helps a little,
