Chapter 9. Working with Frames

Chapter 9. Working with Frames

Think of frames as multi-paned windows to your Web site. Instead of a single, scrollable page full of text and images, framed pages display two or more pages within the same browser window. Usually, framed pages (framesets, in HTML-speak) contain a main pane and one or more smaller panes. Panes may include scroll bars that permit you to move through the frame independent of the other elements on the page. Some frames, used for navigation menus or logos, remain stationary in the browser as you click through other pages within the frameset.

Many Web designers use frames as navigation tools. For instance, a frame can display a site-wide table of contents alongside each individual page. Other sites use frames to force visitors to view advertisements or other banner images.

In this chapter, I cover:

  • How frames work

  • Creating frames

  • Adding content to frames

  • Adding frames and framesets

  • Adding NoFrames content

  • Adding inline frames
