Chapter 8. Working with Frames and Framesets > Understanding Framed Websites

Understanding Framed Websites

Framed websites are generally easy to spot; chances are you've used one and might not have known it. A framed website generally consists of numerous parts, starting with the frameset. As you've seen up to this point, browsers typically open one page at a time. When a site uses frames, this concept is no different. However, rather than opening numerous files at one time as you might think occurs with framed sites, a browser generally opens a frameset. The frameset is usually split into numerous frames that make up the content of the site in the frameset. Figure 8.1 shows a framed website in use.

Figure 8.1. The MSDN Library website is a classic example of a framed website.
