FRAMES OR TABLES??  - Flash/Shockwave Games & Ad Banner Rotation phpadsnew

We have a page that we will be using to host a Flash game.  Basically we cut and paste a javascript link and clicking the link loads the game from the provider's server, and then the game runs in our page.  We will soon using the program called phpadsnew (http://www.phpadsnew.com) to rotate banner ads throughout the site.

Our question is this: should we put the banner ad delivery in a <b>table</b> above the Shockwave/flash games?  Or, will the banner ads' delivery interfere with the loading/performance of the games, and vice vera, and therefore we should put the games on one page and the banner on another and join the two via a <b>frameset</b>?

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

you should use frames because if your ad script reloads the page where it is located it will only reload its frame and will not interfer with the game. Even it does not reload its own page, i would advise you to use frames.

Hello Bruno,

Thanks for your reply.  This is what we are thinking, as well.  Please, if anyone else has opinions or experience either way, we would be so grateful.

Many thanks,

There are a couple of things you want to know before you decide.  

Will the page with the flash game allow itself to be framed?  It is very easy to prevent a page from being framed and many content heavy pages protect themselves by breaking frames.

Second, will the flash get restricted in a frame, if it needs a bigger display area than a frame then you may want to just put it in a layer and let the page stretch out naturally.

Under no circumstance would I consider using a table.  The weakest possible way to do layout is with a table. Just use a couple of divs if frames are not feasible.

Hello CD! :)

Will the page with the flash game allow itself to be framed?  
Yes

Second, will the flash get restricted in a frame, if it needs a bigger display area than a frame then you may want to just put it in a layer and let the page stretch out naturally.
No

So... we should go with the frames, yes?

Many thanks,

Frames are the better choice IMO.
