   Changed the names to "strange", "charm", "pratchett" and "gaiman"; this
made not one whit of difference.

   What eventually worked was writing things so that instead of calling the
absolute URL of the frames displayed, it calls a relative path. Since both
domains are on the same machine, this could be done.

   I don't know what would happen were the two domains on different
machines, but until I have to deal with that, problem sorted.
