Chapter 15. Creating Web Sites with Frames > Creating and Editing Frames

Creating and Editing Frames

A major shortcoming of most Web sites is that a visitor who clicks a hyperlink receives a whole new page. Figuring out which parts have changed is a major distraction.

A frames page gets around this shortcoming by dividing the browser window into zones called frames. The frames page defines the overall frame layout but provides no actual content. Instead, each frame displays a self-sufficient Web page. The frames page tells the browser what pages to load initially; later, hyperlinks reload individual frames in response to visitor selections.
