    single div changes

    How do I change the contents of one particular div on a page without having to load a different page that looks identical in every way except the contents of that div? In other words, if I have a site where the only thing that changes is the text article depending on which link you've selected from a menu, I want just that text to change, not to have to reload the menu, graphics, etc. Like frames, but without the evilness that is inherently frames.

    Thanks for any help on this.

    DHTML is the way to go for something like this.

    Check out this link:

    Goodle Search for "DHTML change div contents"

    Maybe it will give you a good idea of what to do.

    Thanks much. I will test this out over the weekend and post my results.

    And I appreciate the positive response on my art. Flash is at the top of my "major design tools" to learn, now that I've got a good handle on how to bend Illustrator to my will.
