Chapter 15. window > Description

Description

Inline frames, or iframes (no relation to iMac computers) are frames which, instead of belonging to a frameset, lie directly embedded in a Web page. In many ways they are exactly like layers for Netscape 4. The major difference is the iframe is a W3C standard supporting all the major attributes these two browsers require for effective use, including the valuable src attribute.

For compatibility with Netscape, I recommend you enclose <ilayer>...</ilayer> (inline layer) tags inside <iframe>...</iframe> tags, with both having the same src attribute. Netscape 4 will ignore the iframe tags, and Internet Explorer 4+/Netscape 6 will ignore the ilayer tags. This will cost you HTML 4.01 compliance, however.
