Chapter 11. Frames > Inline (Floating) Frames

11.6. Inline (Floating) Frames

Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 introduced a feature called inline frames, which are identified with the <iframe> tag. They enable a scrollable frame to be placed anywhere within the flow of an HTML document, much like an image.

Although, as of this writing, inline frames are still only supported by Internet Explorer (limiting their practicality), the <iframe> tag and its attributes currently appears in the W3C's HTML 4.0 Specification. With the W3C's thumbs-up, we may see more browsers supporting this nifty feature in future versions. See Section 11.7.4 later in this chapter for an example of how to create a similar effect in a way that works in Netscape Navigator, too.
