This is a problem with the way Netscape works. We did try to
anticipate this by putting (obviously not prominently enough)
the legend

Navigation:[Press mouse button down and select Back/Forward in Frame]

in the top frame, ie do NOT use the Back button itself, but use
a prolongued press of the mouse button itself. Perhaps people were
not expect to see this caption there, and so did not notice it. I think
perhaps I will make it blink? Please do let me know if the wording
I used is ambiguous, or how it can be improved so that people
can make use of this feature.
