I admire everyone who even KNOWS whata CSS is logically about. Just as I was getting used to HTML here we ago again. This script is great...Hope I don't drop it before I get home.

I am trying to get the links to open in an iframe. Is this possible? If so how would I code the link? Thanks

nice style, wouldn't be a bad idea to have round.gif change to red on roll over.
