Hi, you're welcome, glad to be of any help.
Sounds like you're close to getting it done or done
with it already.
If you're interested, here's the redirect idea in a little
more detail and doesn't involve edits or renaming.
All requests to html files in /abc/def/ could be handled with, say,
RedirectMatch ^/abc/def/(.*)\.html$ /common/global.html?$1
which loads the frameset file global.html (in the 'common' dir.) with a
param in the URL that denotes the actual file that was requested.
Since the static file at /abc/def/ghi.html will be served up in the
bottom frame, and should not be intercepted by the RedirectMatch above,
/abc/def could use an alias, say
Alias /bottomframecontent /var/www/htdocs/abc/def
