well just to let you know... HTML is not a programming language, it shouldnt even be tought in compsci Confused

second, even if HTML is tough, FRAMES are old, outdated and noone is using them anymore... I truly dont see a point in having them...

But yeah, JSBN and PHP God are our HTML experts at the moment... ask them

Yes, html is not included under the ICS3M curriculum.
But.......
It should be included in my oppinion.
Anyways, Frames = BAD

They have a purpose, but they get annoying. Especially sites that use them just to put a banner at the top of the screen.


IFRAMES can be useful if you need to include stuff in the middle of the page, but they are highly UNSUPPORTED.


I find iframes useful for when I am developing something I know will only be used on systems with IE, and only when they are absolutly needed.

markup language is essensially tags that tell text how to display. Its really no different from a MS Word documen, its just that all the bold and italic and whatnot tags are not displayed.

frames are nasty... they can sometimes be used and look OK if the person knows what they are doing (for layouts... tables and includes are your friend Very Happy). iframes are a bad idea to use because only IE supports them :/

lol, frames are ok if u know how to use them...for example if ur whole page is made up of frames and u have a navigation bar in one of the frames, only that frame will change not the page...technically u have have tens of page on one page Very Happy

Actually, in the new W3C standards, tables are depreciated for layout, and the use of CSS for layout is encouraged. Tables were only meant to be a way to format data, anyway.
