A simple three-framed page:
<frameset cols="25%,50%,25%">
  <frame src="frame_a.htm" />
  <frame src="frame_b.htm" />
  <frame src="frame_c.htm" />

Definition and Usage

The <frame> tag defines one particular window (frame) within a frameset.
Each frame in a frameset can have different attributes, such as border, scrolling, the ability to resize, etc.

Browser Support

The <frame> tag is supported in all major browsers.

Differences Between HTML and XHTML

In HTML the <frame> tag has no end tag.
In XHTML the <frame> tag must be properly closed.

Tips and Notes

Note: If you want to validate a page containing frames, be sure the doctype is set to "Frameset DTD".
Important: You cannot use the body element together with the frameset element. However, if you add a <noframes> tag containing some text for browsers that do not support frames, you will have to enclose the text in a body element.

Optional Attributes

DTD indicates in which DTD the attribute is allowed. S=Strict, T=Transitional, and F=Frameset.
