Default Replacing Frames

Yes, I know frames are a bad idea, and I don't use them.

However, I have an existing site, purchased by a client and modified by me some years ago, which has a frame with external links on the left, displayed on the right in a frame. The intent is to keep the user on the client web site while allowing the user to use Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac web sites.

It would be easy enough to take out the frames and just let the user go off to the other sites, but as you have already guessed, the client doesn't want that. Should I just open a new window? What do you suggest?

There are two reasons we are examining this page. First, the client went to the page and discovered that two of the links were broken. They were easy to fix, though. Also, the client wants his own property listings page added to the choices on this page. I have fixed the bad links, but I want to carefully consider what to do now.
