Yuk.  I'll admit I don't like frames at the best of times, but is there any
reason why the two-part form can't be two *pages* rather than two *frames*?

The way I usually do that stuff is get them to fill in part a, then part b:

1) validates part a
2) decides what the part b form should look like
3) includes the contents of part a as hidden fields

But if you *have* to have the form split into two frames, then javascript
would submit the first form contents to the second frame, which would then
act like "part b" as above.

You would need to ask a javascript list about that tho :)
