Chapter 8. Working with Frames and Frame... > Targeting Browsers That Don't Suppor...

Targeting Browsers That Don't Support Frames

Older versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer do not support frames. If one of your users accesses your site using a 3.0 or earlier browser—such as a browser in a cell phone or PDA—the user will not be able to see your frame-based site. However, you can insert a tag into frameset documents called <noframes>. You can put content in this tag so that browsers that don't support frames can still present alternate content to the user.

Note

If you do end up writing alternate content within a <noframes> tag, it's important that you limit the amount of CSS you decide to use (if any). Chances are high that if a user's browser doesn't support frames, it probably won't support CSS either. Of course, there are some exceptions; Pocket PCs don't support frames but do support early CSS implementations.
