    can I achieve this without frames?

    Hello all,

    I have never used frames and I must admit I have been trying but am having a lot of trouble making them work. I would like to ask if any kind soul can point me in the right direction.

    I have a search page. On it there is a logo image and an area for searching clips by the editor, client etc. (I am not asking for help with the search coding, I've got that handled).

    What I need to know is:

    When one searches, I need the results to pop in and when one chooses a clip to play, I need the clip to come up.

    I have atttached a graphic representation of my question to try to make it clearer

    Thanks

    Avoid frames

    Frames have drawbacks even if they are used expertly; I would strongly recommend steering clear of them for that matter.
    I suggest a normal, static page with two inline frames (iframe), one for the clip and one for the scrollable search results.

    A description can be found in the W3C HTML 4.01 specs: Inline frames: the IFRAME element
    Regards,
    Ronald.
