Not sure where to put this. But I need some help as I am attempting to make a website page on what the history and specs of the machines as detailed as possible. I only have one of the pages up, and I am giving exclusive links to this on this post so you can give me feedback. I need to know If my information is wrong, and if I am missing anything important. Owad, you might be able to help me on this first one, as you are into the Apple 1, and have written a book on this. The first page I have written is on the Apple 1, I need insight as the layout may not be the best. Be warned that this is on a yahoo site, and if it becomes popular, I will upgrade to an adless sight. this is the page (note, i hope this puts this link in the topic right *crosses fingers*) when you go to the site, hit the "Apple 1" under the 6502 on the left frame.

Could you elaborate Doc? How does writing your site with PHP make using frames any easier or better than writing a site in straight HTML? If anything, I think it eliminates them a lot more, since it's easy to include a menu file, rather than have a frame for ease of updating.

Edit: I just read this over and realized it sounded confrontational. I'm just curious if there's something I've missed or misunderstood.

because lots of browsers don'

because lots of browsers don't render frames as well. In truth, I'm suggesting he create a framework of div's and then he can just plug simple html for the contents of each computer record you have up. It may seem more complex at first to create the framework, but managing large tables of dada (pages) get much simpler via the PHP method.

For example, look at my site and see what happens when you scroll:

So you're suggesting he just use CSS and slightly more up to date HTML for layout and plug in the content with PHP and presumanbly a database since you mentioned tables of data?
