Well if you assign the iFrame an id, then you can use document.getElementById() to retrieve it:
<iframe id="id_name" ...></iframe>
var i_frame = document.getElementById('id_name');
So whatever id you assign to the iFrame, you need to use the same id to retrieve it using getElementById().
Let me know how it goes,

So when will the page within the iFrame get changed? Only when an item from the nav bar is selected, correct? Are there links in the pages within the iFrame? It might be tricky (I'm not sure if there's an event of some kind that you can handle for this..) if the page in the iFrame can change with the user needing to click on the main frame.
If this is the case, it may be better to scrap the iFrame idea, and move to using a DIV and server side using includes (using PHP or something...). This will require the page to 'refresh' more, but you'll have better control over it.
