I have seen this done before.  You need to put the div in the main frame and
hide it.  From your contents page (onmouseover jscript) make the div on the
main frame visible an position it.  This can be a pain since your main frame
is changing source and positioning is difficult.  You may want to #include
the submenu div's on each page.

An alternative is activeX, see http://www.msnbc.com  It would be nice if div
had a float over frame feature ;)

Subject: Dropdown Menu Trouble

I'm trying to create a dropdown menu for navigational purposes within a
frames site. The menu is located on my contents page and I want it to
open the different pages in the "main" frame. (It's self explanitory
when you see the site...) Here is the URL:


What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, John
