Hi Laura,

If I understand what you want to do, I think you can do it with Ajax. Have a
look at the this demo [1] I think it does what you want.

Importance: Low

hi Everyone,

I was referred to this group when I asked a question of another
group that I just don't know how to resolve.

Problem statement:

I have a 2 column page, the navigation on left, the content on
right side div=sidebar, and content on the right div=main . (Well
that's how I'd love the content to work!)

Constraint: I don't have PHP or any other database type of
capability. I am trying to open the link on the sidebar on the
right side of the window in the "main" div.

the link: http://octos.org/ooth/2new.htm

the links currently open to a new page, losing the navigation. I
realize I have many other changes to make the pages right, etc,
but I got stuck on how to open the links so they display, without
using those old aweful frames! I'm really stuck on this.

Does anyone here know what or how to do this?

I would be ever so grateful. Much thanks to you for reading this!
