Problem: not on object on left side Area: Javascript
In non framed versions of html code the following code doesn't really work:
Following code is working with an index from a selection (drop-down box)

function JumpTo() {
  i = document.forms[0].elements[0].selectedIndex;
  window.parent.frames['self'].location = document.forms[0].elements[0].options[i].value;
}
Called by: <input TYPE="Submit" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Let see" onClick="JumpTo()">

Code can be replace by:
function JumpTo(form) {
  window.location =
  form.elements[0].options[form.elements[0].selectedIndex].value;
}
Called by: <:input TYPE="Submit" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Let see" onClick="JumpTo(this.form)">

Reason: Some browsers its javascript plugin are more checking for the right code
