I want to create a page with three frame columns because one of the columns
will need to be updated on a regular basis and the other two will remain

something else, but this is what I know, I'm under a deadline, and I don't

frameset within something that will let the entire thing scroll? I'd like
to avoid scripts if possible. An example page or tutorial would really be
