Part: VI Building a Web Site > Multipage Layout with Frames

Hour 20. Multipage Layout with Frames

One major limitation of HTML in the old days was that you could see only one page at a time. Frames overcome this limitation by dividing the browser window into multiple HTML documents.

Frames are like tables (covered in Hour 14, “Advanced Layout with Tables”) in that they enable you to arrange text and graphics into rows and columns. Unlike a table cell, any frame can contain links that change the contents of other frames (or itself). For example, one frame could display an unchanging index page whereas another frame could change based on which links the reader clicks.

Frames are supported only by Netscape Navigator version 2 or later and Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3 or later. However, you'll see how to provide alternative content for other browsers that don't display frames.
