Right now the three panes are all within one Laszlo application.  I have  
vertical and horizontal divider views which are used to resize the panes.   
Rather than using three IFRAMES, two with Laszlo components and one with  
HTML, I was thinking about simply having a blank space in my Laszlo  
application over which I float an IFRAME to display HTML data.  I have a  
vague notion of how I want to do this, but a concrete example of something  
that does it would be nice to look at.  I'll do some more searching in the  
forums to see what I may have missed.
