There are various ways to accomplish what you are doing. I am not necessarily encouraging you to continue on the design that you have chosen, but I looked at your code and slightly modified it to work with the direction you are going.

Try something like this for the index page. Dont forget to add a doctype at the top of each of your pages.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title> Student Book Reservation | Book </title>
 #container {width:1250px;height:500px;}
 #header {font-size:32;font-style:italic}
 #menu {background-color:#FFFFFF;height:780px;width:250px;float:left;border-style:solid;}
 #content {background-color:#EEEEEE;height:780px;width:985px;float:left;border-style:solid;}
 #footer {background-color:#FFA500;clear:both;text-align:center;}
 function preview(param) {
   content.innerHTML = '<iframe style="width:100%;height:100%;" frameborder="0" src=" ' + param + ' " />';

<div id="container">
<div id="header">Student Book Reservation</div>
<div id="menu">
<input id="ma" type="Button" value="Manage Account" onclick="preview('index2.html');"><br /><br />
<input type="button" value="Add New Book" onclick="preview('index3.html');"><br /><br />
<input type="button" value="Browse Book" onclick="preview('index4.html');"><br /><br />
<input type="button" value="View Request" onclick="preview('index5.html');"><br /><br />
<div id="content"></div>
<div id="footer">Online Book Reservation ©</div>

thank you very much Sr.JorgeM my problem is when I click the button it display the url content into div content.

Ok, no problem. So, do you need additional help? The example I provided above does allow you to click on a button on the right side and displays the content in the "content" div. That is what I understood you needed help with.
