    Side by side IFRAMES

    Is there a way to create side-by-side or horizontal IFRAMES. If so please provide an example. Thanks

    I'm working at the same objective here. I have two iframes, side by side, inside a div. The div has a border of 1px. When I use {float: left;} on the left iframe, it covers the div's left border. But when I use {float: right;} on the right iframe, it does NOT cover the div's right border.

    To get the page to appear how I want, I only use the {float: right;}, but from what I know and have experiences with iframes and html, this shouldn't work this way. Can someone explain this to me?

    And the reason I'm using the div tag is that I want my content centered on the page, and while "body {text-align: center;}" makes things look fine in IE, it does not in Firefox 4. If there are any ideas why this is so, please add to reply.

    Thanks

    I figured this out. Chrome reads carriage returns as white space, and thus, I needed to scale down my iframe so the whitespace plus the iframe would fit in the alotted space.
