According to the balance theory, we want the first main border line will be the vertical line more than horizontal line, unless you want to emphasize a very flat visual effect.
Check: include navigation buttons.
You can use the 'border properties' to modify the background. Remember, do not make your plane too busy, dizzy, and lousy.
The syntax of 'borders & navigation links' is invisible in the <HTML> View. However, if you mark the navigation, the syntax will appear in the '<!--Webbot--> of tag window.
The syntax of default navigation is:
<!--webbot bot="Navigation" s-orientation="vertical" s-rendering="graphics" s-type="top" b-include-home="TRUE" b-include-up="TRUE" -->
The syntax of user defined navigation (as left.htm) is:
<!--webbot bot="Navigation" s-type="sequence" s-orientation="vertical" s-rendering="graphics" b-include-home="FALSE" b-include-up="FALSE" u-page="sid:1003" -->
home= home page
up= upper level
