Working with Frames
and Linked Windows
In the early days of the Web, two significant limitations of web browsers
were that they could only display one document in a browser window at
a time and that sites couldn't open more browser windows if needed.
Frames enable you to divide the browser window into sections, each con-
taining a different document, and linked windows enable you to create
links that open pages in new browser windows. Used properly, these two
techniques can make your website easier to navigate. Unfortunately, they
can also be misused to make your site confusing, difficult to use, and
annoying to your users. In this lesson, you'll learn how to apply these
techniques to make your site more usable.
You'll learn all about the following topics:
