    Unhappy CSS help


    CSS vs. Frames.. I've heard that CSS kicks butt over frames but I know nothing about em. Can anyone explain to me in laments terms how I'd go about using them instead of frames?


    Mucho Gracias!

    Cheers

    That's a bit like asking, "airplane vs. automobile". The two are technologies of transportation, but are not mutually exclusive. CSS is a way of seperating instructions for formatting data from the actual data itself. Frames is a way of displaying multiple HTML documents simultaneously, in ...well, in frames. I think you'd be better off reading a tutorial on HTML 4.0, DHTML, or XHTML 1.0. All of those cover CSS and Frames. You can't use CSS to provide the same functionality as frames, though you can "simulate" frames using DIVs and positioning them with CSS. HTH.
