Chapter 5. Layout > Keeping Pages Framed

Keeping Pages Framed

Imagine that you’re reading a book. You finish for the night, place a bookmark on the last page you read, and put down the book. The next night, you pick up the book to resume reading where you left off. Through some strange shift in reality, however, the bookmark returns you to the cover, and you have to flip through all the intervening pages again to get back to where you were. If you’re creating a Web site with frames, that’s how the site may seem to your visitors: They want to bookmark an interior page but end up bookmarking the cover.

This isn’t the only problem with referencing framed Web pages. What if you want to refer visitors to a specific page within the site from an email or from another Web site? Sure, you can give them the URL for that single page, but if you send them directly to that page without the frames, it’s like giving them the book without the rest of the pages or the spine. You could create a different frameset document for every page, but this is problematic and unwieldy.
