Notepad is one of the greatest HTML editors out there.. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Anyway, what you want for frames links is to use the target attribute.

But you have to first give your main page a window name, which you have to set in your frames page.

So, something like this in your frame page..

<blockquote>&lt;html&gt;
&lt;frameset cols=&quot;10%,*&quot;&gt;
&lt;frame src=&quot;navigate.htm&quot;&gt;
&lt;frame src=&quot;mainpage.htm&quot; name=&quot;main&quot;&gt;
&lt;/frameset&gt;</blockquote>

Then, for your navigate page, link your pages thusly:

<blockquote>&lt;a href=&quot;links.htm&quot; target=&quot;main&quot;&gt;View Links&lt;/a&gt;</blockquote>

For more on HTML tags, attributes, etc., I suggest visiting The HTML Compendium (http://www.htmlcompendium.org/)

raw html code is a chore, thats why i endorce macromedia dreamweaver 4 ::holds up package in vanna white style::

html programs are soo much easiar and there is a lot more u can do with them.

DreamWeaver is one of the best WYSIWYG HTML editors out there. But the problem I have with WYSIWYG editors has been that they always add redundant code to the pages, and DreamWeaver is no exception, even though it does its best at trying to reduce redundant tags.

Once you're used to it, plain-HTML is quite easy (afterall, it's not a real programming language), and it's much better to know the code if you're going to do anything truly dynamic.. and by that I don't mean simple mouse-over stuff (I mean things like this (http://www.imemorymall.com/), which is one of the sites I made for my previous employer).

since seeing is believing, im gonna stay with dreamweaver, (v4 is really good, tho expensive) cause i dont type too fast, and if u make a little mistake ur page is f'd and u have to search through coding, where with dreamweaver it finds bad code and fixes it.

Certainly, DreamWeaver is something nice to have... even "professionals" use it for web design. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif
