Lesson 9 : Frames and Things

Frames are among the most complicated of web page additions because they involve the use of not one, not two, but more than two pages.  To create a frames page, follow these steps:

  1. Create a special web page that shall be the basis for your site, this particular type of HTML coding places most of the material within just the <html> tags.

  2. After the </head> tag, create a <frameset framespacing = "2" cols="207, *">, this should be the basic format for all the frames on a given page; the framespacing parameter is only used once but there is a cols or rows set in each tag to define the area of the page in pixels or percentages that each frame will occupy.  Frames may be nested within each other and segment the allotted space.
