Part I: Learning XHTML > Using Frames

Chapter 6. Using Frames

Mention the topic of frames to any gathering of Web developers, no matter how small, and you're bound to trigger a lively debate on the merits (and demerits!) of this controversial technology.

Frames, first introduced to the Web world in Netscape Navigator in their simplest form back in version 1.1, evolved into what we know as frames today starting with version 3.05. Frames were formally adopted into the HTML specifications with HTML 4.0, and are carried over into XHTML 1.0 with the XHTML 1.0 Frameset DTD.

This chapter teaches you:

  • How to create a basic frameset

  • Three methods of dividing available screen space into frames

  • How to change the look of frames through attributes

  • How to nest frames within frames

  • How to target content into specific frames
