Chapter 6. Changing Web Page Layout > Creating a Frames Page

Creating a Frames Page

Instead of using tables to structure a Web page, you can designate that different parts of the page appear in different frames. When you lay out a page with frames, the end result looks very similar to a page laid out with tables, but the behind-the-scenes work is much more elaborate.

The concept behind frames is that you create a single shell page, sometimes called a frameset, which contains individual frames of information precisely positioned where you want them. Each frame can display either static information that has been entered directly in the frame or the content of another file. The beauty of using frames to organize your data is that you can display the information from one file in multiple locations. When you need to make a change that affects every page in your site (for instance, adding a page to the table of contents), you make the change in only one place.
