    Smile Linking between and styling frames

    Hi,

    I have recently created this page using frames:-
    http://www.cageonline.co.uk/arcadmin/index.htm (This is a 3 frame layout)

    From there I am trying to link to this 4 frame layout:-
    http://www.cageonline.co.uk/arcadmin/frameset.htm

    How do I do this without opening frameset.htm in a new window?

    Also, I have 2 more problems with IE:-

    The middle frame in index.htm (welcome.htm) does not seem to have picked up any styling in IE (if you view the page in FF you'll notice the image is pushed down and away from the margin).

    frameset.htm seems to have a 15px (or so) margin on the right hand side of the page when viewed in IE.

    Any suggestions (apart from scrapping IE)?

    Thanks a lot.

    The only suggestion I would have is not to use frames! I've never used frames and don't intend to.

    Look into server side includes (SSI). For example, the include() function in PHP is very easy to use and less confusing than frames in my opinion.

    Thanks for your response Raffles

    The only reason I'm using frames is that I want the user to be able to resize the left hand frame (as per the MSDN site). I believe the only way to do this is using frames? Or perhaps using iframes + some javascript?

    I am familiar with include files in ASP, however I'm not sure I'll be able to get the desired effect using these?

    Ah, in that case frames are the straightforward way of doing it I suppose. You could resize divs using some javascript but that would be a bit over-complex perhaps. Can't help you with the frames, I'm afraid.
