    I would recommend laying your page out in a table...in the top cell put a banner, and in the bottom row make two cells: one for your navigation, and another cell for your iframe. In this cell, put only your iframe. Also, to keep your site looking consistent across different resolutions, specify your table widths in pixels, not percent. On an 800x600 res, you can go as wide as approximately 770-780 pixes w/o scrolling. (the horizontal scroll bar takes up 20 pixels, but I have seen some people comment that 780 pixels also makes the page scroll vertically.) Play around with it, here is some sample code that i suggest to get you started:
    Code:
    <table width="700" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr> 
        <td colspan="2">Banner</td>
      </tr>
      <tr> 
        <td>Nav</td>
        <td>Iframe</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    Enjoy!

    ummm please don't say that you are paying geocities to host your site.. please say the ads are defeated with tags.

    use tables for sure... check out the html source from the linked site in my sig. you can create tables within tables to stabalize everything. my site can be shrunk and the images will never move, "skew", or distort. yeah!

    edit: are you wanting to use an iframe for a way to just pull the news from a php file?

    Another comment about your site: a general rule of thumb when using background music on a webpage: ALWAYS include an on/off button, so users can turn it off while browsing your site. If you don't include an on/off button, the on/off button will become the X in the top right corner: they'll leave your page.
