With frames, several Web pages can be displayed in the same browser window.
With frames, you can display more than one HTML document in the same browser window. Each HTML
document is called a frame, and each frame is independent of the others.
The disadvantages of using frames are:
The frameset element holds one or more frame elements. Each frame element can hold a separate
The frameset element states HOW MANY columns or rows there will be in the frameset, and HOW MUCH
percentage/pixels of space will occupy each of them.
The <frame> tag defines one particular window (frame) within a frameset.
In the example below we have a frameset with two columns.
The first column is set to 25% of the width of the browser window. The second column is set to
75% of the width of the browser window. The document "fr-example1.html" is put into the first
column, and the document "fr-example2.html" is put into the second column:
Note: The frameset column size can also be set in pixels (cols="200,500"), and one of the
columns can be set to use the remaining space, with an asterisk (cols="25%,*").
Hint: If a frame has visible borders, the user can resize it by dragging the border. To
prevent a user from doing this, you can add noresize="noresize" to the <frame> tag.
Note: Add the <noframes> tag for browsers that do not support frames.
Important: You cannot use the <body></body> tags together with the <frameset></frameset>
tags! However, if you add a <noframes> tag containing some text for browsers that do not
support frames, you will have to enclose the text in <body></body> tags! See how it
is done in the first example below.
