I got my includes to work, but I am trying to get my documents to include my right and left navigation menus with my document. I can get them to appear, but they load in order, one above the other with the main document below. I don't know how to get the correct placement (right on the right, left on the left with the document in the center.)
I ran into another problem. After vewing it on one machine at 800x600, it looked quite differnt at 1024x768 on another machine (the whole layout was up against the left.) If there was a way to get the whole layout centered, I could live with that. I tried "relative" but that didn't work. I'll experiment some.
This is the problem with Divs and absolute positions. you can try using JS to detect the screen size and then adjust the placement of the divs dynamically.
It is problematic and you need to decide what screen sizes you are gonna support. One neat trick here is to create a CSS style sheet that holds the positions and colors of the divs and then use JS to get the size and pull down the correct css...
