About Frames

Frames can be very empowering from a design perspective. Designers can keep sections of a page static while other parts of the page can be used to display other pages. Navigation is the most common reason to use frames, because you can specify a navigation area that is to remain in the same place at all times (see Figure 9.3). A designated area in a browser window that can display an HTML document independent of what's being displayed in the rest of the browser window is called a frame. An HTML file that defines the layout and properties of a set of frames is called a frameset.

Figure 9.3. This frame-based site keeps the left navigation area static, enabling new content to be loaded into the main window at right.
