Guide to frames usage

Frames syntax: the FRAME element

Inside a FRAMESET element, the FRAME element is used to specify the name of a frame, and the first document that should be displayed there. This element must be used for each row or column, as specified in the surrounding FRAMESET element.

Syntax of FRAME

The syntax of this element is very simple:

<FRAME SRC="url" NAME="string">

The required SRC attribute can be an absolute or a relative URL for the document to be displayed initially. The optional NAME attribute should provide a name for this frame. Names are case sensitive, and may consist only of letters and digits. They should be unique in a frameset, so that each frame can be identified by its name without conflicts.
