This usually happens, but if you go to http://www.tsn.ca first, and then go back to http://courses.ece.utoronto.ca/ece451h1s then the behaviour changes, and the link is opened up in the whole window. This seems to be a problem because the right-hand frame on courses.ece.utoronto.ca/ece451h1s is called "main" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to www.tsn.ca 2. Go to courses.ece.utoronto.ca/ece451h1s 3. Click on the "instructors" link on the left-hand frame Actual Results: The link opens up in the whole window Expected Results: The link should open up in the right-hand frame
Correct. http://www.tsn.ca doing window.name="main", and "instructors" link use target=main. So this link target whole window.
Yeah, but I think we should be blowing that away when going to a different site....

BTW, IE 6.0 have 100% same bug. What stantarts say about this case?
Summary: Link opens in top rather than frame → window.name does not change when going to different cite.
What about NS4.x?
Same behaviour on NS 4.x, but not in IE 5.0

The standards say nothing. If we're interoperable with other browsers on the market, then we're doing the right thing.
