    iFrame = inline frame. Think of it as embedding another web page inside the current page.

    Yes, but keep in mind the difference between an iFrame and just a frame. With a frame, the page is basically split up into however many frames you choose. With an iFrame, you can stick another page inside your page wherever you like. They are quite neat.

    But IFrames are not supported by many browsers, so beware.

    My site is built with a lot of iFRAMES. Only for IE, but you can't do this with ordinary frames! (you can, just more difficult!!)

    Quiet Storm, I LOVE your site!!! It's so cool! Well laid-out, cool visual effects, mouseovers, and so on. You should write an article or tutorial about what's involved in doing a site like yours. I'd sure want to read it!

    Quiet Storm;

    I was wondering how you changed the location of the scrollbar from the typical right side to the left side on on of your inline frames in the Chromeless window. I found a code for this once before, but when I was looking for it recently because I wanted to use it, I couldn't seem to find it. Could you share what you did to change it to the left side?

    Scrollbars on the left aren't recommended for Western civilization...but here it is anyway.

    css

    body {
    direction: rtl;
    }

    Heh heh...Stormy has a following.

    Btw...I didn't see any chromeless or navigation for that matter.

    Sorry...but only Opera6 IE6 NS7 see iframes covering only 73% of all users (mostly IE6). It's just not enuf for me to take seriously at this time.

    Well, I'd still like to know how it was done. If nothing else, it would be worth experimenting with just to see what can be done with iframes.

    A following, huh? Kinda cool!

    IFRAMES can also be seen on IE5.0 and IE5.5...
    (oh, yeah) but you cant position things on top of an IFRAME (z-index) on those versions, only in IE6.

    Internet Explorer

    Yep, in IE6 I've been able to position images on top of the iframe!

    Check out an example:
    http://www.angelfire.com/mo3/cbch21/2/index.html

    Click on 'NASA' (left menu) then 'Merritt Island' (right menu) and look at the scrollbar on the center area when the page comes up... the top and bottom images cover part of the iframe to make it look like it's behind the main image.

    Come now. Iframe has been supported since IE3 (THEY invented the thing) and Opera 4. Don't know about Mac and nix browsers.
