HTML Frames

With frames, we 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 other.

The disadvantages of using frames are:
                1) the web developer must keep track of more HTML documents
                2) it is difficult to print the entire page.

The Frameset Tag

·         The <frameset> tag defines how to divide the window into frames.

·         Each frameset defines a set of rows or columns.

·         The values of the rows/columns indicate the amount of screen area each row/column will occupy.

The Frame Tag

·         The <frame> tag defines what HTML document to put into each frame.


<frameset cols=”25%,75%”>
                <frame src=”a.html”>
                <frame src=”b.html”>


·         User wants to prevent the resize the border of frame. You can add noresize=”noresize” to the <frame> tag.

·         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 encose the text in <body></body> tags.

·         Add the <noframes> tag for browsers that do not support frames.
