I'm curious about your and others' opinions about web page navigation 
and framing others sites.  Regarding the links on my site, I've 
endeavored to disable the frames when going to most web pages.  But I 
have kept the navigation framing intact when linking to an FTP site 
and when refering to a single HTML document on another site.
Is this a reasonable compromise?   I was also wondering about the 
reference to it being specifically prohibited by some sites.  Do you 
mean the ISP hosting the site or the "linked" site?
