I'm pretty new to javascript and I've got a question about how it handles reloads. I have an onload function call set up in a body tag of an HTML file and it calls the function fine when the page is loaded but when you hit reload, it's not recalled. For some reason it's on a problem in Firefox and in IE it seems to be working just fine. Any help is appreciated.

Here's my code:


<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">

function getTitle(filename)
{
var nameArray = filename.split("/");
var index = nameArray.length - 2;
if(nameArray[index].indexOf(".") > -1)
{
return "Ethereal Divine";
}
else
{
return nameArray[index];
}
}

function updateTitle()
{
//document.write("<table border width=100%>");
//document.write("<tr width=100%>");
//document.write("<td width=10%><img src=\"darthvader.jpg\" width=100%></td>");
//document.write("<td width=80%><center><font color=\"red\"><h1>" + getTitle(parent.frames[2].location.href) + "</h1></font></center></td>");
//document.write("<td width=10%><img src=\"Wolf.jpg\" width=100%></td>");
//document.write("</tr></table>");
document.write("<center><font color=\"red\"><h1>" + getTitle(parent.frames[2].location.href) + "</h1></font></center>");
}
</script>
</head>
<script>
</script>
<body bgcolor="black">
<script language="JavaScript">
updateTitle()
</script>
</body>
</html>



I've moved the call out of onload but it still produces strange results - it seems to work on the first run in Firefox and it works fine in IE but refresh kills it in Firefox (title is not rendered).

Also, if I take out the document.write comment and put in the others, I'm attempting to create a table, which IE blows up horizontally, violating all the td constraints which I would expect it should be forced to follow since they're specifically stated in the table declaration.

The page is referenced within a frame from my index.html file, and parent.frames[2] represents the main body document.

Any help is appreciated.
