Persistent Elements with Frames

If you've started to link pages together in your site, you've probably duplicated the navigation bar on each page. Providing a consistent way to navigate through a Web site is very important in creating a pleasant and seamless user experience. If your navigation is built using rollover images, the process of loading new pages can take quite awhile. Even if the individual images of the rollover navigation are cached, the load time still suffers.

One potential way to get around this is to use a frameset to define a navigation frame and a content frame. These frames each contain their own HTML document and only the portions of the page that actually need to change have to change. An added benefit of frames is that although the content of one frame might move as the page is scrolled, the other frames do not. This means that your navigation bar stays in the same place on the screen at all times—no need to scroll around and find it when you're done with a particular page.
