well i have basic idea abt website (html,css.) now i have a plan to
make a site i wanted to do some thing like this
the left side has menu and links and top has a banner and these to
remain the same what ever page is opned on the site
some thing like in this website http://www.eng.umd.edu /
where when i click on "about us" everything remains same but i get the
about us page on the right side below th banner
and then when i click "academics" i get the "academics" page but the
side and top remains same
also a small detail that when "about us" page is open the small box at
the side of the "about us" link in the menu bar becomes glowing red..
can some one tell me how can these things be achieved and is this just
HTML or some other things i need to use.... soem book i can reer to
fro these details.
i have started using Nvu for designing if any one has a better sw
option plz also let me know that
thanks in advance

Sorry, yes it's the same era as education and culture. Terribly old
fashioned and not a bit "modern".
I really must get with it (sorry, wiv it) and modernise.....

Re: website design
Lots of ways:
* Frames. Bad, bad, bad (search this group or c.i.w.a.h for why)
* PHP includes. Not so bad, but still a little bad. OK if you're
planning on using PHP anyway, otherwise avoid.
* SSI. Now you're talking (search for SSI, you'll find out the
details). This is a lot like the PHP option, but less complex and so
there's less to go wrong. I'd recommend looking at this, maybe using
* A smart editor. Editors should have powerful features for search and
replace, including "regular expressions". If yours doesn't, get a
better one (most good ones are free too). This is probably the way I'd
* Other more complicated ways. Avoid.
Some other stuff. Mostly HTML, a bit of help from either the web
server or the editor. _Certainly_ not any sort of "programming" task
Any useful web hosting these days bundles in Apache, .htaccess and SSI
for free. Maybe PHP too. If you aren't getting at least this much,
Mainly this stuff is web searching, but I'll repeat my regular plug
for "Head First HTML with CSS" as the best HTML tutorial around and
the only one that will actually teach you good coding styles.
Personally I prefer a simpler text editor, but if you want to go down
the WYSIWYG route, Nvu seems a good choice.
