Anyone who wants to lean about HTML will benefit from this book. The Chapters give you a basic grounding in all aspects of HTML while the reference sections give you access to a lot of valuable information in a concise and easy to use format. This book packs a massive amount of information into such a small format which would be a bargain at twice the price!
This is supported only by Internet Explorer 3 and 4, and is used to add extra space between frames. The syntax is:
While you are experimenting with frames, you may notice problems using the 'reload' option on your browser. Some browsers only reload the current frame. Whilst this is often appropriate when viewing a document across a slow modem link, it may not be what you want if you are experimenting with frame layouts. Look instead for an option to re-open the entire document.
The <FRAME> Element
The <FRAME> element provides the following attributes:
Renders a 3-D edge border around the frame. The syntax is:
Drefines the amount of space between the top and bottom edges of a frame and its contents. The syntax is:
Defines the amount of space between the left and right edges of a frame and its contents. he syntax is:
where width is the amount of space in pixels. As with MARGINHEIGHT, the value must be 1 or greater. You should generally use MARGINHEIGHT and MARGINWIDTH as a pair, as specifying one without the other can lead to some unexpected effects.
Allows you to specify a name for the frame. The syntax is:
This allows you to attach a name to a particular frame, so that pages can be targeted at it in hypertext links from another frame. We'll look at an example later in this chapter.
Prevents the user from resizing the frame. The syntax is simply:
Creates a frame with or without scrollbars. The syntax is:
where value can be YES (scrollbars are always displayed, even if the page content fits within the frame), NO (scrollbars are not displayed, even if the page content is too large for the frame) or AUTO (scrollbars are only displayed when the content is larger than the frame). Again, you need to use this only when absolutely necessary. Setting SCROLLING=NO and NORSIZE could render your site very difficult to use for someone with a low resolution screen, and hence a small browser window.
