    Hi, here is the 'about' section of my site:

    SimonSomatic.com - Info

    I'd like to have more text, but rather than scrolling down to see it, have several page numbers at the bottom of the text block which you would click to get to page 2, 3 etc. I'd like just the text to change while the rest of the page stays the same.

    I can't do it with frames because then the background would have to reload. I don't want to use a 'swap' behaviour because the mouse pointer doesn't change when you hover over the page numbers (the way it would if it were a proper HTML link), which gives it the appearance of having no function.

    Is there any other way I can do it?

    Thanks for reading

    In a word...AJAX. You'll have to have a non-Javascript alternative for those who have it disabled, but this will work.

    The only downside is that if people use the back button, they won't go back to the previous page of the article they looked at, but rather the previous web page they looked at.
