Good sidebar

Hi,

I'm needing to add a sidebar, but this sidebar needs to be nice and compatable with things, it needs to just sit on the left and not mess up the layout at all.

I know I can do it like this:

Code:

<FRAMESET COLS="37%,63%">
    <FRAME SRC="blah.html" NAME="Side1">
</FRAMESET>



But I need it so you can do this:

Code:

<FRAMESET COLS="37%,63%">
    <FRAME SRC="assa" NAME="Side1">
</FRAMESET>
Some content here.<br>
 Blah blah
<? echo "maybe even some php"; ?>
anything

Basically so I have the sidebar on it's on which I put in the header & then the user is able to make their page as normal and the side bar will show.


Any ideas how I can do this please?

Thanks
Craig.

You can use DIV layer and Z index, instead of frames It can be programmed through  java script to hide and show and it doesn't mess up with your contents also.

Hmmm, OK, I'll see if I can make it look any good with a DIV layer.

Thanks

Going to accept your answer as we're using Div tag to do it now and I'm going to implement some hide/show java soon :)

Thanks
Craig.
