Sorry I should have added that I'm using RHX5 and outputing HTML Help although I don't think that is a factor in my stupidity in not getting this to work. Grrrrr!
I haven't tried framesets in a CHM project before, but in WebHelp, for the TOC, you have to link the Frameset topic rather than the content topic. I *think* something similar applies when you are creating index entries - you have to assign the frameset, not the content file. I can't check that project at the moment, sorry.
With the search, we didn't find a solution to only the content page loading, unfortunately. Again, this was for WebHelp, not CHM output.
Hopefully that helps some...

The only way I can see a solution to this is if all the navigation takes place inside one of the frameset frames.
