    I am using an advertising network to show some ads on my site. The problem is that it takes forwever to get those banners from their server, so my pages take a long time to load. Someone told me that if I put the banner code in an IFRAME it would solve my problem. How would I do that?

    THe code for my banner looks like this:

    <script language="javascript">Qval='xxxxxxxxx'</script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.advertisingcompany.com/pubcodes/banner.js"></script>

    Thanks for your help

    What he means is place the iframe code on the page you want the ad to appear

    Make a new page

    url-to-file-holding-ad.php [or htm]

    which has your java on it

    Upload and hey presto there it is in a frame of 468 etc :)

    Yup, I meant to post " I think I figured it out".

    Thanks!! :D

    Another question: would it be worth the fuss to put the Googleads in an IFRAME? Why do people do it? What benefit does it carry?

    You can control the ads externally then from just one file - much like any other include.

    you will also most likely want to add frameborder="0"....so the frame is seamless.
