Hi,
I want to create IFrames at runtime.
I used document.write("<IFrame ...></IFrame>").
It worked fine. Each IFrames has set of links and caption. So,I've to create 2 rows for each IFrame.What is the best way to do this?.
One way is creating a table inside each IFrame and the other way is create two <Div> tags .One for the caption and other for the links.These 2 div tags should be inside the IFrame.

Is there any other way to do this?.
I'm creating the IFrame at runtime.
Any ideas/suggestions can be very useful for me.
Thanks in advance.

I would suggest coding the tables for each IFRAME in an external file and then having the IFRAME link to the file -- thus, you would have <IFRAME SRC="stuff.html">
This approach would make updating the links easy, as you would only have to edit the external file, you would leave the IFRAME alone.  This may not work if you create the links and IFRAME contents at run-time, though.  If you do that, I suggest using the DIVs, because they are easy and work well with IFRAMEs -- unless you want borders for each "cell", in which case a table is the obvious choice.

Ah, so you ARE embedding at run time.  To change HTML (including DIVs) at runtime, check at http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdn-online/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/properties/innerHTML.asp
