[thelist] default doc in DW frameset

If this is "Do Dreamweaver's links recognize default files in a directory?"
then sorry, no, if you don't specify a file in a directory then this is
usually resolved by the server. On a client machine there wouldn't be a way
to assure that the app's guess of the desired file would be the same as
what the server decides is the default file for that directory.

Summary: Instead of "nav/", we need "nav/index.htm" or whatever while
authoring, sorry.

(I don't know if there's a way the DW engineers could change this, but it
couldn't hurt to drop a quick note to wish-dreamweaver at macromedia.com...
the priorities for the next cycle are still being assessed, so *now* is a
particularly profitable time for change-requests, thanks.)
