    iframes, browsers

    Hi there,
    got a few questions here:
    1. Which browsers support iframe?
    2. Any rough idea on the percentage of people using those browsers that do not support iframe?

    thanks.

    "Currently, only Internet Explorer 4 and later and Netscape 6 are the only browsers that support IFRAME tags." From : http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl...nts/iframe.htm

    Although Mozilla 1.0 and Opera 6.02 definately both support them as well.

    For stats on use: http://www.thecounter.com/stats/2002/May/browser.php

    Looks like around 91% of users can see iFrames. Not good enough in my opinion. Imagine the mayhem if one in ten users of a car park were told they needed a newer car, no matter how happy they were with their current model.........

    About 95% of my viewers can see IFrames. It does make life more difficult.

    Just for the record, i am all for iframes, IE4+, Opera 5+ and Netscape 6+ all have support for iframes, they are also supported under the XHTML transitional and frames DTD's. my site (see sig) uses them extensively yet is still fully functional in a text only enviroment with no support for iframes.

    lynx supports iframes as well, insofar as it displays them as a "clickable" link to the iframe content...if that makes sense.

    is there an alternative to iframe

    hi,

    i am making a custom CMS using php and i wish to use iframe in the front page and so all the links come to a certain area. this saves me stay re-writing the same code every time to make the design of the page look good.

    i would like to ask if there is a php alternative to iframe? or any other method i can use.

    if there isnt i'll have to use iframe for sure.

    thanks a lot.
    rIGO
