HTML frames is a feature that has evolved a great deal from its origins in HTML version 3. There are two distinct versions of HTML frames. The legacy frame specification from HTML3 and 4 has been obsoleted in HTML5. There are still a lot of sites around that use the legacy frames model, so I'll be covering that in this chapter, even though it's obsolete in HTML5. The more recent iframes model for in-line frames has been retained in HTML5. While its usage is very different from the legacy frames, you can still accomplish the same layouts and much more, using iframes, although for many purposes even iframes are no longer necessary, as the same functionality is available using CSS.
HTML has a long-standing history of supporting frames for embedded content. In the rest of this chapter, I'll show you some examples of how frames work.
