Got a quick question: Is byethost.com (iPage web hosting) for mac users only? Thanks in advance for any answer. 2nd question I got is.. I am creating a iPage site for my office. (.

Http://www.design-oriented.com/Layouts/Layout03.html.

).

I would like to keep the top and bottom bar static. And everything happens in the middle section. I tried setting it up using frames. But it is very cumbersome. I was considering using two seperate i-frames for the Menu and the Body of the site..

I know i-frames have issues with anything older than Netscape 6. But from what I know, 89% of all users have an i-frame friendly browser. So basicly I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what I can do. I am programming the iPage site using HTML and JavaScript. I do not know any of the other languages...

Yes sir! but you might want to make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you email the iPage guys because they can help better...

Well there are a couple reasons why I am considering frames because from my experience, tables cannot accomplish what I want to do..

Like the menu for instance. When you select services for instance, I would like the services to drop down like windows explorer works. The 3 services will show up underneath, and push the other categories down the page. And I have not found anything with JavaScript that would allow this to work..

Second, the body. I would like that bar at the bottom of the page to always be visible. so it means I would need that section, and only that section to scroll. Because if need be, I would rather have someone scroll within a window and have the menu bar visible at all time rather than having to scroll back to the top of the page to select the menu again..

I mean I am up for options. Just learning new things takes awhile. It took me awhile to learn HTML on my own. And I am supposed to have the iPage site done by the end of the month. Which does not leave much time to learn. But does not mean I cannot go back at a later date and redo it...

* Like the menu for instance....

A layer and your script will get you far..

* Second, the body.....

Again a layer and your script will get you far..

But as mentioned before it's up to each individual to do.

Whatever he/her finds suitable..

Frames works great, however there are certain issues one.

Have to be aware before using them, but if this is not.

Problem - well go ahead and use frames..

Where would I find script that I could look at? What language can you use layers in? Can you give me a webpage as an example?..

Http://javascript.internet.com/.

Will give probably all the.

Scripts you need and there are probaly a thousand other.

Sites, if you do not program the scripts yourself..

I would suggest using Dreamweaver if you are not familiar.

Working with layers and place your script in layer's for.

Constant visible objects..

You can always measure the screens resolution by using.

Screen.height screen.width and place your objects using.

Screen.top and screen.left.

Well thats the basic procedures. I never used it myself but.

Thats how the programming language looks like..

Hope this answers your question..
