Adding Frames when Designing Online Documents

If you’re creating documents that will be viewed online, you can take advantage of frames to organize your documents. Frames enable you to create areas for the text on your screen that allow you to divide a window into multiple areas so that you can show several documents at one time. Frames are frequently used in Web page design and for long documents on enterprise networks. For example, frames might be used to create an interface for a human resource manual.

Web designers commonly use frames to create several window regions, each of which shows specific types of information. For example, frames are sometimes used to create a menu bar that contains links to pages on a Web site. Users click links on the menu bar in one frame to display selected information in another target frame that serves as the main content area. Figure 17-3 shows a Web page that uses three frames—one title area frame, a navigation bar frame, and a body frame.
