Using Targets Properly
Now that you have created a simple frame document, we are
going to put it aside and create something better! Are you
ready? Great, let's get to work!
Start with a new, blank document in Simpletext/Notepad
and save it off as "test4.htm" to your work
folder. Then, start a frame document like before -
I bet you saw the differences right away, didn't you?
COLS is like ROWS, except instead of creating two frames
split horizontally, you have two split vertically. Also, you
told the browser to make the left-most frame exactly 150
You are going to create one additional new document, an
HTML page called "leftnav.htm", in a moment, and
that page will be going into the left-most frame. The
right-most frame will start with your first web page,
"test1.htm". So your <FRAME> tags, should
look something very much like this -
Then, just close off your two tags -
Close up that page and open a new, empty document in
Simpletext/Notepad. Save this one off as "leftnav.htm"
to your work folder.
Now it is time for you to try it on your own. You need to
create an HTML document with two hyperlinks - one to your
"test1.htm" document and one to your
"test2.htm" document. Use what you've learned the
last two months to work on your own, without my showing you
the codes line by line.
In next week's lesson, I'll go over what your page should
have resembled, and deal with simple explanations for the
problems you may (will) encounter. Good luck and have fun
