Iframes - How To Get Sationary)


Recommended Posts



From what you have said, I am guessing they are in a table or a layer where the width is a % of the screen. You will either need to use a static amount or use absolute positioning with CSS. Iframes is not really recommended now with CSS around.

You could use transparent spacer gifs in the columns to the left of it to stop the left column collapsing.

Then use relative attributes and the rest of your page will Dance about and the I-frame won't have any where to go.

Takes some experimenting though.

I gave up using I-frames in my on going quest for ultimate accessibility after realising netscape doesn't like relatively sized I-frames.

I'd sacrifice one "mmm nice site" email for a thousand hits with no complaints.
