i am using a frames interface for a local intranet. a pdf document or an excel document will be loaded into the bottom frame in a html document using the embed function. what i need to do is have a text link in the nav frame that prints the contents of the bottom frame- i can get it to do this by using parent.framname.focus/print however, the pdf file and the xls file are not printed and i need them to be.

has anyone else had this problem and do they know of a work around (preferably only using javascript)
