I'll admit being something of a novice here. How do IFRAMES work? Seems like a nifty idea, but I've heard they implode on some browsers. Any help would be appreciated.

they are not supported by a lot of browsers, they tend to be not worth the trouble.
In a nutshell, they are floating frames, any size, embedded into a document. They, of course, contain another document.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

Embed anywhere in a webpage between the body tags:
<iframe src='somepage.html' width='200' height='200'><noframes>Your browser doesn't support Iframes.<br><a href='somepage.html' target='_blank'>Click here</a> to view somepage</noframes></iframe>
Iframes work the same as a basic frameset in that your links within the somepage.html will open within the Iframe unless targeted otherwise.

i think iFrames are good, but then again i use Frames. please don't crucify me
the fact that it allows me to embed a page into another means i can just use one page to view with just one line of code to display whatever page i want. it doesnt have the drawbacks of frames too (saving to favourites etc)
