Hour 11. Understanding and Building Frames and Framesets

Love 'em or hate 'em, many people seem to have strong opinions about frames. Frames can be an excellent way to present information on your Web site, but they can also be a navigational nightmare to your users. Take care and make sure that your frames are carefully created so that the user can navigate to links that you provide in your site without getting perpetually caught in your frames.

Certain types of Web sites are excellent candidates for a frame structure. A good example is a site with a table of contents constantly available so the user can make multiple selections. Why make the user continually navigate back to a table of contents page? You can load the table of contents page into a frame and load the requested content into another frame so both are present on the screen. The Dreamweaver 3 help pages are an excellent example of this type of frame configuration.
