I have a site that I am trying to create. I have the site looking the way I want it to look except for the following things.

1. All the content on the site is provided by a <DIV> layer. I want to be able to have the user click a button and the new topic be loaded into the <DIV> layer. I don't want to create a page for each topic on the site. I just want to be able to dynamically replace the content.

2. I have some <DIV> with images in them. I would like to learn how to dynamically move the <DIV> across the site.

3. Last thing, I am using style sheets to position all of the <DIV> tags. I have one <DIV> that I want to position on the right edge of the browser. The problem I believe is if the user screen size isn't as large as mine the <DIV> will be positioned off the screen. Using style sheets and Javascript how do I position this <DIV> the same distance from the right edge of the browser regardless as to the screen size (640X480, 1024X768, etc.).

If someone could point me to a tuturial or other resource I would appreciate it.

I believe chapter 3 is what you're looking for, although the whole tutorial has alot of info.

The layout you described seems to be similar to

For 1, you'd probably use innerHTML to dynamically change the contents of the div. Check for info on innerHTML.

2 would require using Javascript. Once again, check w3tutorials.

3 requires a combination of Javascript and CSS; you have to find the user's resolution, and that can only be done through Javascript. Build in a failsafe in case the user has JS turned off.
