I have an idea to create a newsboard for my site, but I need help figuring out just how to do it. The idea is to have two iframes sitting next to each other. The one on the left will contain a list of popular websites relevant to my site. When the user clicks on one of the names, I want the left iframe to show that site's RSS feed, then when they click on a headline link, I want the story to appear in the right iframe.

Is this possible? I've been trying to look up different codes for this type of thing and while I have found similar tutorials, I have failed to find something that does exactly what I outlined here.

Any help whatsoever, even if it's just a link to somewhere else, would be very much appreciated.

Is there more information you guys need in order to help me or is this request just something that is too complicated? :(

Alright, I have my iframes setup, and the different feeds are showing up in iframe1, but when I click on a headline it opens a new window. I want each of the links to target iframe2 and only show the full news story in plain text (not the actual website). Can someone here help me with that much?
