Setting Attributes

After you have created and saved your frameset and frames (and nested framesets and frames, possibly) you can set a number of their attributes (this term is used interchangeably with the Dreamweaver term properties here) using the Dreamweaver Property inspector. In this discussion of the HTML code involved with frame sites, earlier, in Tables 12.1 and 12.2, you read about the commonly used attributes for both framesets and frames; most of these can be set using the Property inspector. Any attributes not available through the Property inspector, of course, can be set by editing the source code directly, or by using the tag editor.

Frameset attributes and frame attributes work together using the cascade principle: Setting a frame property overrides any setting for that property in a frameset. If you set border attributes in a frame, for instance, and these attributes are different from the border attributes set for the frameset itself, the border attributes of the frame will take precedence.
