Oh sometimes things are just to obvious ;) (it works)

Am I right that I can't use it in the preamble to work for the whole document? At least with me than I have still the child_lines in the document. I managed to change latex2html 
main script and frame.pl so the are not there when I don't have any entries between them.

(I depend on other peoples point of view) (I must admit that it looks alright with netscape and MSIE)

Another question I have is this, when one creates a document with frames where no footnotes are in, then latex2html still creates the footnoteframe but the contents of the 
footnoteframe is a directorylisting. Ok I found in frame.pl the 'sub make_frame_header' 

  #if (($has_footref)&&(!$NO_FOOTNODE)) {
    if (!$NO_FOOTNODE) {
	local($footheight) = ($has_footref ? $FOOTNOTE_HEIGHT : '15pt');
	# If there are footnote refs: 3 frames
	    = "<FRAMESET ROWS=\"$NAVIGATION_HEIGHT,*,$footheight\""
		. $NO_BORDER . '>';
	# The footnote frame is called "footer"; its contents come from $footfile.
	$footframe = 
	    "<FRAME SRC=\"$footfile\" NAME=\"footer\" SCROLLING=\"auto\">"
    } else {
	# Otherwise: no footnote frame required -> only 2 frames.
		. $NO_BORDER . '>';
	$footframe = "";

but it seems that $NO_FOOTNODE is not passed correctly to this function. And what is the reason for not using (($has_footref)&&(!$NO_FOOTNODE)) at the beginning? It looks 
to me as it would serve the purpose of putting a footnodeframe only on those pages witch have footnodes much better.
