Introducton to Web Design Single Window Frames
TAG ATTRIBUTES DESCRIPTION
<FRAMESET> - </FRAMESET> The main frame definition tag. This tag goes within the <HEAD> element.
ROWS Defines the size and number of rows using a comma-delimited list of height values either in absolute pixels or as a percentage of the total usable area.
COLS Defines the size and number of columns using a comma-delimited list of width values either in absolute pixels or as a percentage of the total usable area.
<FRAME> Defines a single frame within a frameset. There is no closing tag
SRC Defines the HTML source document that should be loaded into a frame. It takes a URL just as the HREF attribute in the <A> tag.
NAME Specifies the name that will be used to identify the frame by other frames or other windows. This can be any text string, but try to make it meaningful such as "table_of_contents_frame". Several key names have been reserved. These are _blank, _self, _parent, and _top. So don't use these unless you mean to reference those particular frames
MARGINWIDTH Sets a horizontal margin of the given number of pixels.
MARGINHEIGHT Sets a vertical margin of the given number of pixels.
SCROLLING This attribute is used to manipulate a scroll bar within the frame. It can be set to YES, NO, or AUTO. If it is set to yes, there will always be a scrollbar. If it is set to no, there will never be a scrollbar. And if it is set o AUTO, a scrollbar will appear only when needed (ie: the user resizes the frame)
NORESIZE This attribute prevents the user from resizing the frame.
<NOFRAME> - </NOFRAME> Specifies content in case the browser viewing the document does not support frames. It is a very good idea to make sure that your site navigation works with or without frames.
