    I want to make a links page with the screen shot of each website I am going to link. Is there a way I can make it load the webpage in a small area(thumnail)? Or would my best option be to just capture the screen shot and just use it as an image to link?

    I dont know if this is clear, if not ill try and clarify.

    AFAIK, you have to shoot a screenshot. You can get the website to show up in a small area using ilayer/iframe, but it won't scale it'll clip.

    ilayer? Last time I checked, ilayer was died with Netscape v4. I'm torn on recommending iframe as a solution - its not really an officialy W3C tag, but IE and now Gecko based browsers support it. Frames would be the other way to go.

    But as PM said, its going to get clipped instead of being resized. So to perform the resize to a thumb, you'd have to take a screen shot.

    Hm, I didn't know iframe worked in Mozilla now.

    Its been in Mozilla since the Milestones (maybe Milestone .8 or .9). Enough web devs complained to them to put it in, they finally decided to go do it (really another reason I like the Mozilla project - they listen to the web community).
