Getting started

In this lesson, you'll create a frame set for a Web site called bugbody and then add the content to the frames. First you'll view the finished site in your Web browser.

1.
Use your browser to open the Web page index.html in Lessons/Lesson07/07End/bugbody/web-content/.

This is the bugbody site's home page. As it is not part of the frame set, it appears as one page across the whole browser.

Note

Frames don't work well with Web search engines because frame sets have no content. For this reason, it's a good idea to not use a frame set for your index (or home) page. Also, you can't set bookmarks in the browser for frame-based Web pages because the URLs map to the frame set rather than the desired pages.

2.
Click the text “Enter.” This link is to an HTML page called frameset.html.

Although you can see content in this page, frameset.html only contains code for the site's frame set. The content pages are separate HTML pages that open up inside the frame set.

Notice that the page has three frames: the information about the grasshopper's head is the main frame, the list of contents is another frame, and the animated image at the bottom of the page is another.

3.
Click the links in the list of contents to explore the site.

4.
When you have finished viewing the site, exit or quit your browser.
