Frames allow you to divide the page into several rectangular areas and to display a separate document in each rectangle. Each of those rectangles is called a "frame". Frames are very popular because they are one of the few ways to keep part of the page stationary while other parts change. Frames are also one of the most controversial uses of HTML, because of the way the frames concept was designed, and because many web framed web sites are poorly implemented.
We start off this section with a tutorial on creating frames. We'll start with a simple set of frames, move into more advanced frames pages, and then show some special techniques for using frames.
