i have finally got some content at my new fansite.
http://www26.brinkster.com/javaguy/everclear/
hint: use a full screen browser window at at least 800X600
only the song samples and lyrics links work so far
as long as you dont put too much content in your menu bar there is no scrollbar between frames

So write the thing in JSP and use an include statement to add the navigation text. That way you only have to write the navigation thing once (and thus only make changes in one place) and you avoid those nasty frames.

if you are thinking of using include then use <jsp:include> else everytime you make some change in your included page then you will end up putting a blank space in each jsp page.

You can include another asp page just like you can do with jsp's.
