Firstly, do you prove the contents of $num_results to be sure that the
then-clause is actioned?

Secondly fopen returns a value which is resource for use in later f*()
function calls - or which indicates that the open failed for some reason.
Please refer to: http://uk2.php.net/manual/en/function.fopen.php

fopen() only opens the file, or in this case web page. It is thereafter
necessary to read the file (several functions available) - and to fclose()
it later...

You talk about "loads a blank page into the frame". Do you want to read the
contents of the web page with a view to further processing (my example: read
the page and locate any links - to verify 'continuity'), or do you want to
'read' the page to present it within your output, eg one frame within a
frameset (in which case fopen() etc is probably not the best route)?
