Problem loading a Domino database into a Web site frame

I am implementing a Web site with two frames (left and right). The left frame is a navigator frame. It consists of an HTML file containing a DHTML JavaScript menu called "coolmenus 4."

The right frame is the target for all links from the navigator frame (left). The menu's second and third levels cascade into the right frame.

Now this works fine when I load any HTML file into the right frame. The problem is when I load a Domino database into the right frame. The cascading levels no longer appear in the right frame!

Do you have any ideas to make this work?
The fact that the HTML shown in the right frame comes from a Domino server has nothing to do with your problem. What's displayed there is just HTML like any HTML coming from any other server. The problem must lie with what's on the page that the Domino server is generating. Is it a form that you are displaying, for instance? DHTML menus often have problems with these, where the cascading menu cascades UNDER the fields on the form.

Basically I'm telling you that your problem is not Domino-specific. Try using the support forum on
