Scripts in iframes can call functions in external scripts. But an attempt by a script in the enclosing page to call a function in an iframe fails. What can be done so that iframe scripts get the same capabilities as scripts in frameset frames?
Additional information: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/frames.html#sharing-frame-data "Sharing data among frames Authors may share data among several frames by including this data via an OBJECT element." I have tried this with the OBJECT tag - same negative result. IFRAME and OBJECT: Only tag attributes such as name, or document properties are accessible. It is understood that the OBJECT tag can be used as a replacement for the IFRAME tag. Because of this, in the interim, I am not creating a duplicate bug record for the behavior of the OBJECT tag.
