    Anyone got a link to brucies site?
    I'm looking for the one thing he did awhile back in which he had a scrolling
    table.
    I want to try it with the presentation I'm going to use on my website.
    Rather than using iframes.
    Even if I do wind up using iframes for faster loading, I would still need
    the scrolling table.

    Do you mean a scrollable table with fixed header?
    Have a look at

    That's the idea. But I may go with iframes.
    Thanks.

    How can you create a fixed table header with an iframe??

    > Magic?


    Almost impossible (unless it's a very simple static table). You can create a
    scrollable table *in* an iframe, not *with* an iframe.

    Just noticed your table has embedded javascript in it.
    Sorry can't use this one.

    There is no JavaScript at that page.

    Even if it had javascript, what's the problem? Important is that the page is
    accessible when js is disabled.

    Read the CSS very carefully. There's a funky CSS "expression" to use
    JScript to set one of the positioning properties. Pure IE-only
    non-standard horror, but it degrades nicely and there's no reason why
    it shouldn't be used with all browsers. That page is a good piece of
    work - carefully done.

    This is from somebody who knows nothing - basically a dilettante.

    I've got an application in which I use frames to present a godawful-long list of
    thumbnails. User clicks a thumbnail, details appear... www.wchs59.com

    I know that frames are the spawn of satan and all that - but I decided to use a
    frame just because it did what needed doing I didn't want to make a career out
    of figuring out the right way.

    Could that table contain thumbnails in one column? i.e. Could I adapt the
    technique to replace my frame?

    A "line" in my frame looks like this:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    <p><a href="Pix/40th/AtzrottElaine.jpg"><img
    src="Pix/40th/ThumbNails/SmithJohn.jpg" width="120" alt=""/><br/>John
    Smith<br/>(JohnSmith.jpg)</a></p>

    Yes. It's just a <td> in there, and anything that's legal to put in a
    <td> (that means most things) can go into it.

    There's a usability issue about any "letterbox" design such as this,
    where you put major UI components into a restricted space. This one is
    quite well done though - it prints nicely. Just make sure that the
    overall size of the table viewport tracks the browser window size if
    you resize it. It's most annoying if you give the window plenty of
    space but the crucial part insists on cowering in a corner.

    I hope you mean yourself and not the one how created that table... It
    really is some nice work.

    > I've got an application


    application? with HTML?? not really...

    > in which I use frames to present a godawful-long list of

    which are bigger than they are displayed. why don't you reduce the sice
    of the images to the size they are displayed with? needs less time to
    load...

    Erm... and what is it that "needed doing"? displaying Information if you
    click on a thumbnail? that did not require frames...

    > I didn't want to make a career out of figuring out the right way.


    the right way for what? and what is the right way? do you know it?

    > Could that table contain thumbnails in one column? i.e. Could I adapt the
    > technique to replace my frame?


    You can. simply put the <img> in the cell you want it in...

    I do not really think it's a paragraph... so why do you use a <p> here?
    I would say it's a list... so use <ul> and <li> here.

    Yes, as I acknowledged that in the other thread. How many would expect
    to find JavaScript in a CSS file? :)

    I'll agree; it is a nicely-done page.

    You can easily change that... just practise, practise, practise. HTML
    and CSS is not that difficult to understand.

    Yeah? How come a being like me who solved Rubik's Cube in 1985 by
    myself, who cracked The Desert Problem using only logic and
    simple mathematical reasoning, who solved the Guardian chess
    puzzle of The Missing King, who can usually do the hardest of the
    Sudokus, always finds it challenging and needs spoon-feeding at
    every turn by you lot?
