Framesets and Inline Frames

  vandana 13:37 18 Dec 2003

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could explain to me the difference between framesets and inline frames?

All I know at the moment is that framesets remain stationary when others scroll, but how does that compare to inline frames?

Thank you very much in advance for your responses!

An inline frame is a box within a page and if you click a link in the main page its content changes.

There's a good overview and tutorial at the following link:

A normal frameset is two or more web pages displayed as one. Click a link in one and one of the others changes.

I don't much like frames in general. They look nice enough but there are a lot of issues to overcome with them regarding search engines, ensuring page loads and all kinds of other things and it can be a bit inconvenient at times.
