Frames are a very small part of HTML so there really aren't any books written specifically about frames. Your best bet would be to look for articles and online tutorials on sites such as Webmonkey or CNet's Builder.com. There's a good introduction at http://www.sausage.com/island/tutorials/frames/intro.shtml that also has a couple of links to some other tutorials.<BR><BR>In my opinion, the best advice you are gonna get about frames is not to use them unless there is no other way to do what you need to accomplish. They can solve certain design problems but can introduce a host of other problems.
In general I agree.<BR><BR>I am currently going to use frames in a web site I'm designing not for the "design" but functionality.<BR><BR>We want to let the users bookmark the main page only (frames buy us that).<BR><BR>Also, we can't use session variables or cookies. We can't post in a certain situation (using a tool called ChartFX that uses a get) so we use a frame and hide vars inside of that to pass from page-to-page.<BR><BR>Once again, I generally agree stay away from frames.
