I'm using Dreamweaver and building a website for the first time and am managing slowly to figure it out. I have created a page with two frames, one of which is the navigation bar. I notice that when I reload this frameset in my browser, the correct button status is not maintained. In other words, if I am on the home page, with the home button in the down state, when I reload the frameset in the browser, the navigation bar button no longer keeps the down state that reflects the page that is loaded into the content window of the frame
Note that this navigation bar was not created using the nav bar command in dreamweaver, rather assembled from an image sliced into separate buttons in fireworks.
I chose to use frames (aside from wanting to understand how to implement them) on the presumption that changes to the navigation bar would be easier to implement if it wasn't duplicated on every single page ... any suggestions. I figure that I can put the page specific info and the navbar stuff in separate layers in fireworks, which should make changing them easier -- but are there or strategies or approaches to bear in mind. It's my first page, so there are gonna be changes.
