[Mapbender-dev] Iframes and jQuery

AFAIK, jQuery loses a lot of its elegance if you have to deal with 
frames. As some powerful Mapbender modules (WFS gazetteer, digitizing) 
are in frames, writing jQuery code for these is just painful (loading 
jQuery in the iframe is not an option).

Has anyone here written jQuery code in environments with a lot of 
frames? I believe no one really has, as there is hardly any literature 
about this.

If we really want to use the power of jQuery, we either need to get rid 
of iframes in Mapbender (which I would prefer), or we have to come up 
with an elegant solution on how to deal with modules that could either 
be in iframes or in the main frames.

Now that I have spent some more time with jQuery, I realize that it 
really helps to write short but readable DOM-related Javascript, and for 
me it is the missing link in further isolating JS from PHP. We should 
start using it.
