Chapter 11 - Creating Framed Layouts
The HTML frame elements let you partition the canvas area of the browser into multiple windows called frames. Each frame can display a separate, independent HTML document. The use of frames has become a subject of controversy on the Web. In many cases, framed Web sites are poorly designed. They detract from the user's experience with heavy download times and confusing navigation. The judicious use of frames, however, can enhance your Web site, allowing you to consistently display navigation information and content concurrently. Frames can be the right solution for solving specific information problems or for providing large collections of content. This chapter explains how to work with frames to display your information effectively.
