    Alternatives to using frames

    Hi - I know it's bad practice to use frames but are there any alternatives other than using Javascript/AJAX? I realise you can use CSS to replicate the appearance of frames, but i'm struggling to see how you can have links which will only refresh one part of the page.....

    Is it necessary to refresh one part of the page?

    It would be nice - however it's not essential. I've considered AJAX but it's probably easier and more accessible (for any users without javascript running) just to refresh the whole page. It's a latest news archive page, with links to each item in the left hand section of the page, and the selected item shown on the right side of the page

    Nothing wrong with Ajax so long it's unobtrusive JavaScript.
