can frames be a solution for my problem?

P: n/a
hi all

ive heard a lot of bad stuff about the use of frames but i cant think
of a better solution to my problem. i need to layout a page so there
are rows of content displated on 90% of the page and at the bottom 10%
there is a some content (advertising etc) that is alwways shown even if
more content exists in the browser window than can be covered by the
top 90%.

are frames the best way to split the page up so that i can get that
bottom 10& ever-present and for the top 90% to have its own vertical
scroll bar if necessary?

regards

marc

No, they wouldn't. A scrolling div element would work better.

Frames are not as terrible as most make them, there's the need for
refinement on how they work and to integrate well and nonintrusively
in the user agent, yes. Anyhow, in your case, frames are not
necessarily and possibly a not-great solution, instead check in AJAX,
asynchronous request servers, like to fetch a new banner every 2mins
or so from the server without reloading the whole page, as for the
persistence at the bottom, that's easily doable with CSS and/or js.
