    Although I know some, I'm not an expert with HTML... I want to put a side navigation bar on my page (not frames), and I'm not sure how to do it. What are the possibilities?

    maggie: if you're not yet familiar with HMTL, then you probably won't want to use CSS positioning...I'd go with plain old HTML tables...

    If you don't know how these works, pickup an HTML Editor...1stPage 2000 is good and totally free

    Download it here: http://www.evrsoft.com

    Hope this helps.

    Here is the code I think you are after. I knocked this up quickly in Dreamweaver, so some editing may be required:

    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code/font><HR><pre>&lt;table width="600" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;table width="600" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td width="116"&gt;
    &lt;table width="150" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;side menu&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;""&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;""&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;""&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;/table&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;td width="484"&gt;
    &lt;table width="451" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" height="80"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;div align="center"&gt;content goes in here&lt;/div&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;/table&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;/table&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;/table&gt;
    [/code]

    This will give you the result I think you are after. It is the kind of side menu I use at Methven Online.

    Wow, thanks a lot. I'm a newbie here, and very impressed so far...I appreciate your help. That's exactly the type of side bar I want, I'll try the code.
