frame job

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Poly-poly man, Apr 11, 2006.

  1. I know frames are "lame, not useful", etc., but in the job I'm doing,
    they're perfect.

    Anyway, I'm new to frames, and was wondering, how do I do a layout like

    --------------------------------------------
    | f1 |frame2 |
    | | |
    |-----|-------------------------------------|
    | f | main page ('nother frame |
    | r | |
    | a | |
    | m | |
    | e | |
    | | |
    | 3 | |
    | | |
    | | |
    --------------------------------------------

    Anyway, I've gotten each frame to work individually, but working
    together is a nightmare. Can someone PLEASE show me how to do this?

    tia,
    poly-p man

    P.S>
    Excuse the ascii-art :)

    Did you do that with a proportional font, so that it takes the same font
    that you're viewing when you compose to see it the way you intended it?
    If so, use a fixed font next time so the drawing isn't font-dependent.
    Remember, ASCII art doesn't come from the world of word processing.
    Here's what I see of that attempt, with fixed pitch:

    Hmmm, it displays here okay here using a fixed pitch font.

    It looks to me as though Pan (your reader) may be trying to reflow the
    message because its header contains:

    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

    According to RFC2646, 4.2:

    "If the line ends in one or more spaces, the line is flowed. Otherwise
    it is fixed. Trailing spaces are part of the line's content, but the
    CRLF of a soft line break is not."

    So, one or more SPACE(S) followed by CRLF is a soft line break and
    should be reflowed.

    Anything else followed by CRLF is a hard line break and should not be
    reflowed.

    There doesn't appear to be any spaces after the lines in the 'ASCII
    art.'
