Frames provide a way to divide a browser window into multiple regions, each of which can display a different HTML document. In the most common use of frames, one frame displays a document containing navigation controls, while another frame displays a document with content.
A detailed discussion of all the ways to design and use frames, and the code required for hand-coding them, is beyond the scope of this chapter. If you need detailed information about the code used in advanced frame layouts, see a book about frames and framesets.
