Creating a Frameset

Frames consist of individual web pages—one for each frame—held together by a web page that contains the frameset. The frameset defines the size and position of the individual frames. You can either load an existing web page into a frame or create a new web page. The frameset contains the instructions that hold all the frames together. The frameset web page is only visible to the user through the content held in the frames defined by the frameset.

Figure 14.1 shows an example of a web page using frames. One web page called banner.htm is displayed across the top of the framed page. The lower part of the page, below the banner, is split into two frames: the table of contents, TOC.htm, on the left and the main display area, main.htm, on the right. The links in the table of contents frame load content into the main frame. The banner and the table of contents remain constant, while different web pages are loaded into the main display area.
