iFrames

iFrames, which is short for inline frames, are part of the HTML 4.0 specification. What's interesting and useful about an iFrame is that you do not need to build an entire frameset. What makes iFrames so useful is their capability to display scrollbars automatically. Therefore, you can have a region within your document that isn't obviously a frame and have a great deal of information or text that is scrollable.

For end users to see an iFrame, they must be using Internet Explorer 4 or later or Netscape 6 or later. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to create an iFrame within Dreamweaver; you must do it by hand. You may notice that in the code view, an iFrame button (also known as the floating frame button) in the Insert panel under the Frame tab becomes active. This will simply insert the <iframe></iframes> tags into the code for you.
