hello, i am trying to emulate a simple top/bottom frame website with css, where the top section will contain a logo and navigation, and the bottom will mirror another page entirely, like with frames or iframes (yes i'm aware of the criticisms, but i have my reasons). here's the code:


<!-- IE in quirks mode -->
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">
<title>Fixed header</title>
<style type="text/css">
body{
margin:0;
padding:<length> 0 0 0;
}
div#header{
position:absolute;
top:0;
left:0;
width:100%;
height:<length>;
}
@media screen{
body>div#header{
position: fixed;
}
}
* html body{
overflow:hidden;
}
* html div#content{
height:100%;
overflow:auto;
}
</style>
<div id="header"> header </div>
<div id="content"> content </div>

so basically, i want the second DIV to just be a frame, without all the glitches that come along with iframes. ideas?

glitches that come with iframes?

you can do this with AJAX, however all of your links would need to contain the AJAX call and definition to the "frame" which I will assume you dont have access to.

If you want a navigation menu in the top frame whose subitem must show on top of the main frame, then you could apply the technique posted here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25009).
