Lesson 14. Working with Frames and Linked Windows


In the early days of the Web, two significant limitations of web browsers were that they could only display one document in a browser window at a time and that sites couldn't open more browser windows if needed. Frames enable you to divide the browser window into sections, each containing a different document, and linked windows enable you to create links that open pages in new browser windows. Used properly, these two techniques can make your website easier to navigate. Unfortunately, they can also be misused to make your site confusing, difficult to use, and annoying to your users. In this lesson, you'll learn how to apply these techniques to make your site more usable.

In this Lesson

Today, you'll learn all about the following topics:

  • What frames are, how they can affect your layout, and who supports them

  • How to work with linked windows

  • How to work with frames

  • How to create complex framesets

  • Floating frames
