I would solve this using CSS. Have a look at the "overflow: hidden" property
of DIV tag's. If the content get's too long you get scrollbars ... And you
wont need all those frame-stuff in T3.

If you do that (Link to the exactly same page) you will get a endless loop
(Because in the iframe a page get's opened with an iframe in the middle which opens
a page with an iframe in the middle .... you get the point)

you would need to have differen "type=" values and have one just outputting the
iframe and the other just the content ...

but believe me ... css is the way to go.

have a look at one side i made which seems to match you requirements:


"Franchise" or "About us"
