Part V: Fine-Tuning Your Page > Dividing a Page into Frames

Hour 18. Dividing a Page into Frames

If you've hit frame-based pages in your browsing, you know that they're cool. They make your display look like the control panel of a jet fighter—so many different, independent chunks of information stimulating your brain at one time. (If you're not sure what I mean, peek ahead to Figure 18.1.)

It's like the picture-in-picture feature on a new television, for people with eyes so info-hungry that just one program—or one page—at a time provides inadequate sensory input. Of course, frames also greatly expand the author's ability to offer a variety of page-navigation scenarios to visitors.

At the end of this hour, you'll be able to answer the following questions:

  • What's a frames page really made of, behind the scenes?

  • How can I easily create a frames page by using HTML Assistant Pro and Composer together (with no HTML coding!)?

  • How can I create and edit frames in HTML?

  • How do I help visitors who don't have frames-capable browsers?
