'locked' in frameset and no window.close()
My site is stored on personal website which my url-forwarding points to when visitors go to my domain.
The web-forwarding of my registrars use url-masking (aka gripping aka...) which they do by placing my actual page within their own frameset (100%,*) and then allowing all internal links to replace only 'contents' of that frame (not the frameset itself (top, parent))
I have the main body of the site appear in a centred pop-up while the index page is shrunk and forwarded (meta refresh) to a 'thank you/relaunch/close' page.
Problem is with the thank you/.. page- the 'close window' button just will not work.
I have tried every possible permutation of the window.close command (parent, self, top, ...) and none of them will do the trick.
The only unusual thing I noticed was that the <frameset> and <frame src...> (pointing to my webspace) tags are *outside* the <body> </body> tags.
The only <body> content in the source is within the <noframes> tags.
It works fine when I force the contents of the frame (my index) into a new window of its own, just not when its inside their frameset
I tried having a 'break out of frames' script (several copy/paste variations) as an onload script in there too, but even that would not work within this frameset.
