I have been asked to emulate the design of a site but I don't know how.
I can see its contained within a frameset but how have they achieved the horizontal scroll?

Is it a java applet or has some fiendish design been employed?
Any pointers much appreciated.

it's just normal javascript. if you view the source code of the framed pages (and not the frameset) then you can see how it works.
the design has got quite a few problems though. maybe you can fix them when you do your design. if you turn off javascript on your browser, for example, then you're seemingly stuck on a single page. you can't even click the links at the bottom of the page to navigate to another. only a very few of the body text links actually work after that, and those that do open up another tab or window with no styling.
and you've got the normal kind of problems that you get with frames - problems bookmarking pages etc.

Thanks londrum

looks like id better learn javascript.
As for the frame design, I've explained the shortfalls but they are adamant that's what they want.

Mine is not to reason why, mine is but to design and cry.
