I was just making sure that you weren't having a problem where it was

You got me. I won't try to talk you out of frames, then.

That's what I meant, actually. What method are you using to construct
your URLs, how does it render, and where does it actually point?
(Mozilla/Netscape's View Info should be helpful in this.)
I suspect that a proper base tag will let you use relative URLs
correctly, unless your browser/browsers in general don't work this way.
(I really can't speak as to how that works in frames.) In which case,
you'll have to generate port-containing URLs from Zope.
