Chapter 7. Frames > Respecting the Frames-Challenged Browsers

Respecting the Frames-Challenged Browsers

If you create a document with frames, people who are using a browser other than Netscape Navigator 4.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 might not be able to see the content you want them to see because their browsers don't understand the <FRAMESET>, </FRAMESET>, and <FRAME> tags. As a courtesy to users with frames-challenged browsers, you can place alternative HTML code between the <NOFRAMES> and </NOFRAMES> container tags. Any HTML between these two tags is understood and rendered by other browsers. A frames-capable browser, on the other hand, ignores anything between these tags and works just with the frame-related HTML.

Tip

You should also consider providing <NOFRAMES> content for browsers running on screens with a 640×480 monitor. Frames are difficult to use at that resolution.
