    Question using floating (pop-up)frames to display full size of thumbnail graphics

    I have viewed web pages that display thumbnail images of backgrounds. When you click on the thumbnail, the larger version of the thumbnail pops up in a floating frame. Does anyone know how to do this using HTML? (I have no intention on bugging anyone with a lot of pop up windows.) I just want to find out the best way to display my own created backgrounds (for free-download) on my website. Using floating frames (or non-floating frames) would seem like the best option. This person viewing my web page wouldn't have to keep hitting the back browser to get back to the page with the thumbnails on it. I would appreciate any ideas.

    You do not do it with HTML but with JavaScript :

    <a href="http://www.bettiepage.com/images/photos/whip/whip7.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href, 'child', 'height=350,width=250'); return false"><img alt="[Bettie with a Whip]" src="http://www.bettiepage.com/images/photos/whip/whip7_a.jpg'></a>

    Charles, I must say that you use some of the most eclectic and unusual examples within your sample code (I hope that others appreciate your efforts in that regard).

    Thanks for keeping it real in here.

    Wink using frameset

    Thanks for any help you have offered with my frames problem, but I have read up on frames and have used my own sloppy HTML coding to create a page on my own. It may not be the correct way, but for a beginner I have made it from "point A to point B" on my own. I am satisfied. (There is so much to learn and so little time.) LOL
