I'm learning how to use and work with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and haven't yet come across a 'feature' of using them that I thought existed:
I want to, let's say, create a top graphical navigation bar to sit on the top of all my web pages. Isn't there a way to create this as some file to show up on every page of my site, and if and when I want to change a part of it, I just need to change the one file and it's updated on all the web pages?!
I know this is possible using Front Page 2000 under the Shared Borders function, but obviously, I'd like to use perhaps a less restricting method!
I thought this was done using CSS... whether or not, can someone please explain how to set this file up and how to call it from my pages?!
Thanks a lot,
You could do this using SSI (Server-side Includes) providing that your server is enabled to use SSI. The best way to find out more is to read the article http://www.webmasterbase.com/article.php3?aid=27&pid=0 at webmasterbase.com (part of the SitePoint network)

You can use DHTML for this. This example will show you how to do it.
