    Letterbox frameset?

    Sireli
      I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to display the main content on my webpage in a fixed centered box, looking something like this http://www.furiae.com/ (the page belongs to the digital artist Linda Bergkvist).

      I found a tutorial for an older version of dreamweaver that I think would solve my problem, using something called "letterbox frameset"

      http://www.dwfaq.com/Tutorials/Frames/align_wframes1.asp

      I've been unable to find the letterbox frameset option in Dreamweaver SC3 though... the only option containing frames along the sides.. non in the center...

      Would very much appreciate help on the matter! :)

          If you looked at the code (View > [Page] Source) you would see the effect is
          accomplished with an iframe. Google that and you should find what you are
          looking for.

          Beware, frames & iframes are rarely a good layout device.

            Thanks, I found the frame solution in the Dreamweaver layout option.. didn't notice it before. It seems a bit hard to work with though, so I don't think that it is the right solution to my problem. So far I haven't been able to edit the frame at all... Wish there was an easier option to create a fixed editable box then framing..

              I think you'll find that it is generally seen as a poor design approach so
              it is unlikely anyone would take time to make it easier.
