The problem you are facing is that frames are a client-side entity and
PHP is a server-side language. No information about the frame layout is
passed to the server because the frames are fully implemented in the
browser (with each frame really acting as a full-blown browser window).
Hence the only way to deal with frames from the server is to target the
top-most window/frame of the set you wish to change and redraw all its
child windows. There may be some neat way to make the top frame the
target using the header(...) function (but I don't know it). Your other
the frames (since it is client-side it can manipulate the frames inside
if(top.location != self.location)
