Dreamweaver Tutorial: Creating Effective Frame Navigation Frames serve multiple purposes, but what is unique about them is that they enable you to display multiple HTML pages in one browser window and control the contents of each page, displayed in separate frames, individually. Designers commonly use frames to create a page with two or more sections and then place links in one section that, when selected, display information in another section of the same browser window. Frames can save you time because navigation elements are stored on only one page, instead of being inserted on multiple pages. Thus, if you need to change the navigation bar, you on From MERLOT - 10 Most Recent Materials on January 10, 2006 at 10:17 a.m..

JavaScript: Adding Password Protection To Your Site Protecting your Web site from prying eyes requires a server-side solution. But what if your ISP does not offer support for password protection? JavaScript can offer a limited amount of protection for just about any site. By limited protection, I mean that someone who knows what they're doing can bypass the authentication simply by viewing the code in most cases. So, if you need to protect anything really important, like social security numbers, company trade secrets, or charge card information, a server-based solution is the only way. But, if you just want to keep the general public from From MERLOT - 10 Most Recent Materials on January 10, 2006 at 10:17 a.m..


Framework for Addressing Educational Issues Controversy is the basis of change, and hopefully, improvement. Its lack signifies the presence of complacency, the authoritarian limitation of viewpoint expression, or the absence of realistic alternatives to the existing circumstances. An articulate presentation of a point of view on a controversial matter breathes new life into abiding human concerns. Controversy prompts reexamination and perhaps renewal. Use this framework to address any educational issue. From MERLOT - 10 Most Recent Materials on January 10, 2006 at 10:17 a.m..

Dreamweaver Tutorial: Creating Image Maps An image map is one large image that has been divided into multiple areas that contain multiple links. Image maps are great because they let you create custom shaped links around selected parts of an image. Image maps contain more than one hyperlink on a Web page. Clicking different parts of the image links the user to other resources on another part of the Web page, a different Web page, or a file. Often, an image map, which can be a photograph, a drawing, or a composite of several different drawings or photographs, is used as a map to the resources that can be found on a particular Web site.
