JavaScript Style Attributes

JavaScript Style Attributes,
Listed below are the tables of CSS properties for various HTML element style attributes. I have added a column indicating the javaScript name that the browser recognizes for these properties. I have only listed those that I know work, but the trend seems to be to use the same name when one name is the style descriptor. When there are two names, use the first name in lower case and the first character of the second name in upper case. Examples:
color = color
background-color = backgroundColor
font-style = fontStyle
font-weight = fontWeight

Frame Border/Spacing Test

Frame Border/Spacing Test: Main Frame, Stopdesign

The following test was born out of pure frustration from trying to eliminate the extra spacing between frames while still using valid markup. Conclusion: not possible. At least not for now. No recommendations are made through this test other than for my own work and to my own clients. Thoughts and commentary are all included in a relevant log entry created on March 4, 2003: SWF seeking VWM.

Amount of space (in pixels) existing between frames with the following attributes applied to the frameset element.
