    Simulate MDI interface in Web application?

    I want to create a website using VB.NET.

    I would like to know is if it is possible to have an MDI-like interface.
    I would like to have several "blocks" that show information but the user should be able to move them around.

    I thought I saw an article on this on msdn, but I can't find anymore.

    I hope you can help me.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Phil,

    this was almost what I was looking for.
    I do have a small problem when I put a link in it.
    When I click the link it opens in the IFRAME which is not quite what I was hoping for.
    But I guess it is normal behaviour.

    Thanks Phil for the reply.
    I haven't had the time to read the article just yet.

    I have another (stupid) question.
    Would it be possible (with javascript or ?) to make the iframes resizable ?

    thanks in advance.
