The /enable it/ instruction, is a generic instruction that many web
authors just bung between the iframe tags, without thinking about what
they're doing.  A better idea would have been for the page to *include*
the table of contents, or other links, in there; so that without the
iframe, someone could still navigate the page.

Some browsers have options for iframe rendering, but not all of them.
Firefox has an about:config option for frames, in general.  And some
filtering proxies have options for filtering out iframes, too.
