HTML/PHP question

P: 5
Cross posting this in the PHP forum as well, as I am not sure which is better.

I have a index page that is a frame set.
My frame set is
-1-|------2-------|
-3-|-4-|--5--|-6-|

I have a navigation pane in frame 3. The list is php/mysql driven. is what I would like is to display the content of the link in frame 5. I can do this fine making static pages and using name/target. Is what I am looking to do is make frame 5 a dynamic php/mysql driven page.

Ie they click on link xyz from panel 3 and it will display the xyz page in frame 5, but there is no static page for xyz.

Make sense? Help? Or am I out of luck?

Yes, makes perfect sense, and no you're not out of luck.

There is no reason why links in frame 3 could be to a mixture of HTML pages and PHP scripts (or just indeed PHP scripts), keeping the target to frame 5 the same. If you think its reasonable, for your project, the links to your PHP script could also include a query string. For example, a DB id to select what content to display in frame 5.
