Not sure you'll find a tutorial for something like that...are you talking about a button that acts like a hyperlink like this?  It uses javascript in the onclick event.

<FORM><INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" VALUE="Click Here" onClick="location.href = 'http://www.experts-exchange.com'"></FORM>

Yes, specifically like a column of buttons functioning as a table of contents in the left frame of a webpage.

Yes, I found this site myself this morning. But it's not exactly what I need. I need something more in the style of the left frame on this site: http://freespace.virgin.net/sizzling.jalfrezi/iniframe.htm

do you want to use form buttons to make the menu or did you want to make picture buttons like the page you mentioned.  You can contact me on ICQ if you have it 7737689
I am positive I can solve the problem. I just need to talk to you about what all you are looking for.

<input type="button" value="NAME OF BUTTON" onClick="window.location='NAME OF FILE.html'; return false">


this will give you a form button that links to a page when clicked.  If you want the page to appear in another frame let me know and I will help you with that too

That works, but I'd like to spice up the button a bit, and have it open a page in the right frame.
