If you feel some need to use frames for this, yes, it has to be a separate page. That's what a frameset IS. Two (or more) window objects, each with its own document in it.
I personally would just use an include file of some kind for this. Server-side, preferably, but for a free host, you may be stuck with javascript.

Basically you'd wana stick this Javascript in the frame head where the button will be...

var start = 1, end = 3, nr = 1, index = "index.html";

function fChange( num ) {
fname = top.frames[0].location.href;
// alert('fname='+fname);
ii=0; jj=0;
for(i=0;i<fname.length;i++) {
if(fname.charAt(i) == '/') ii=i;
if(fname.charAt(i) == '.') jj=i;
nr = parseInt( fname.substring(ii+1,jj) )+ parseInt(num);
if ((nr>=start) & (nr<=end)) {
top.frames[0].location.href = ""+ nr +".html";
else top.frames[0].location.href = index;

Then have the button like this -

<input type="button" onClick="fChange('+1')" value="Next">

Each page should be named 1.html , 2.html , 3.html , etc.
