Here is an easy workaround (provided that your page uses a navigation/text
frame split).

In the main frameset holder page include a link to the navigation bar page
between the <NOFRAMES> tags. Then the reader would be able to open that
navigation bar as the sole browser page and link to any of the other pages
from there.

If you have a logo as part of your frameset, you could also include that on
individual pages inside <NOFRAMES> tags.

This might not be the best looking way to approach the problem, but I would
guess that appearance is not the top priority of anybody who is using a
non-frame browser.

If you're attempting, as we are, to follow the W3C's Web Accessibility
Initiative, then you should be creating a non-frame version of every
frameset for people who cannot use frames (and there are more reasons
than just old browsers). To me that seems to mean duplicate pages to
create and duplicate pages to maintain. Homey don't like to do the same
thing twice, and sometimes Homey forgets to update both pages (a bad thing).
