Hey Graham, welcome to WmW. I checked the site in IE5 and your file "headlines.shtml" is coming through and scrolling vertically (you have a fixed height). Perhaps I don't understand your question.

Graham, are you aware that Netscape didn't support inline frames in the 4.x versions? Version 6.0 does, but the other ones are still the most common.

Right now, as it is, the page displays well for me in Explorer 5.5, but Netscape 4.7 has an empty box. Here's a reference [mirror.subotnik.net] that really gets into all the details.

Well, I read that document and it missed out what I need! I know there is a way! Somehow..
To clarify the operation I need assistance with; I need to place a link OUTSIDE the IFRAME to be followed and the content INSIDE the IFRAME gets changed. I have tried almost everything. At first I thought it would just be like linking into a regular frame but its more complicated. Do you think I have to just make one page for each document to be displayed inside the IFRAME?

It should work just like a regular frame, as far as I know.

That is, give the iframe a Name:
<iframe name="Name" etc.etc.></iframe>

and then use
<a href="document.html" target="Name">LINK</a>

The nice thing (I think?) is that a browser which doesn't support iframes will open the linked document in a new window.

YES! It worked! I used a regular html link to be followed into the iframe instead of the menu..The reason it wouldn't work before was because the JS menu was the problem.

Thanks a lot for your help! I have it all sorted out now and am a very happy guy :).
