I was just wondering how do you make an i-frame ?? And where in a css would you put it...like between what tags or w/e ??
I know it includes stuff like height, and width but i don't know the actual code.

Oh and i have another question. For everyone out there that is really good (or fairly good) with html and css....what programs do you use and how did u become so good ? I want to become really good at it but i'm not sure what resources i should be looking for (books, websites, programs). Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,

I am not really good, but I can say I started out slowly doing my markup with Notepad. Did a lot of reading on websites and most importantly experiment with what you read. After notepad I tried many other free IDE's and then got hold of Dreamweaver when I was in school and then never went searching for an other IDE. I now use Dreamweaver MX and it does my job efficiently. www.w3schools.com and www.webmonkey.com is a good start for beginners. Good luck

i-frames

thanks for all your help!

I was also wondering if u could change the scrollbar and the background colours when u do iframes....i found this i-frame generator at layoutland.net so i can now make i-frames.

But i still don't exactly understand how it works. I know it opens up a different page in a certain area but how would you target it ? i don't know if i'm making much sense....

i-frames

you can control the color/style of your scroll bar using this body style:

<style>
body{
scrollbar-face-color:#ffffff;
scrollbar-arrow-color:#666666;
scrollbar-track-color:#ffffff;
scrollbar-shadow-color:'#666666';
scrollbar-highlight-color:'#ffffff';
scrollbar-3dlight-color:'#ffffff';
scrollbar-darkshadow-color:'#ffffff';
}
</style>

just change the colors.

i-frames

as far as your iframe it's just a simple bit of code you slap into the body or a table cell:
<iframe src="whatever.html" name="main" scrolling="auto" align=top width=440 height=380 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 frameborder=0></iframe>
Control the color of the window by putting a body color on the target "whatever.html" page (which is the page that will display in your iframe), or by using a background-color style attribute for the text on that page. You can alter the scroll bar properties using that body style in that last post, and the size can be changed of course by altering the width/height properties. I don't know what the name attribute does, but it has to have a name - just be sure all your iframes are named differently.

Also, I used to use Text Pad but then I switched to HomeSite 5 for my coding because I had the demo version of text pad and after three years of it prompting me to buy the thing, I finally just uninstalled it and started using Homesite. I use it because I don't have to use the bells and whistles if I don't want to, and it's far smaller than Dreamweaver MX, though I have that too. I use TopStyle Lite for making and previewing my stylesheets - highly reccommend it.

"Seriously."
