    Adam,

    The idea is to load your frames when people first arrive at your site, and then make all your links load in the middle frame, leaving those same top and bottom frames in place.

    Check out my tutorial on frames at Sausage Island if you need to see some practical examples.

    Adam,

    Basically all you have to do is put TARGET="body" in all of your <A HREF> tags. That will cause the links to load into the "body" frame (your middle frame), leaving the top and bottom frames as they are.

    This is all covered in my tutorial, yes.

    Kyank,

    i visited the tutorial site you linked above and have a basic question.
    im wondering about the image you have in the top right,( beach scenary and the blue background text list below)
    If i wanted to create something similar, would i draw the beach scenary AND the blue table with text links all in one image, then put the image into my code as a imprint?
    or would i just draw the beach scenary and then create the table directly under?
    or other?

    Jizbot,

    What I'd recommend is for you to draw it exactly the way you want it in your favorite paint program (say, Photoshop). Next, figure out what portions of the design can be done with pure HTML. Slice the image up accordingly, and save the pieces you'll need as graphic files. Finally, use HTML to compose your page using the graphics.

    The Sausage Island header you refer it is entirely composed of graphics (sliced up to avoid the need for an image map), but if I had written the page layout (I was only responsible for the content), I would have used graphics for the top image and the rounded corners at the bottom, and tried to do the rest using pure HTML as much as possible.
