Based on the following description, draw a picture on paper of the desired frame page layout. Once you have drawn out all the details on paper, you may begin coding the frame page. All three HTML pages mentioned in the description (displayPage.htm, leftPage.htm, and notePage.htm) have already been created and are downloadable from the links at the bottom of this page.
Note: In real world web design, frame pages are usually drafted on PAPER first. Once the frame layout and design has been drafted out, the coding can begin.
Note: Web browsers will not completely reload frame pages when you hit the "Reload" or "Refresh" buttons. To FORCE a browser to completely reload a frame page (or any page, for that matter), you must take the following steps:
Netscape Communicator: Hold down the "shift" key while pressing the "Reload" button to initiate a "force" reload.
Internet Explorer: Hold down the "option" key (Mac) or the "control" key (PC) while pressing the "Refresh" button to initiate a "force" reload.
