IME, Windows users are ignorant of context menus like that and GNU/Linux
desktop users are getting very used to drag-and-drop too.  Mozilla certainly
seems to make it easier to bookmark a page by drag-and-drop of the location
icon than anything else.  Bookmarking a frame *can* be done, but it's not
the obvious case.

I admit, I don't really see why frames are required in the help-desk.  See,
for example: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/9605.html
...and a long list of others along the whole life of those pesky frame tags. 
It looks like xhtml2 will probably finally remove them.
