CSS Frames vs. iframes
Posted on 2009-07-07
I am currently working on a web site for my wife for her business. I am by no means an experienced web developer (although I am an experienced C++ developer). I've thrown together something that works and looks ok. To give each page a standard look and feel I have used CSS for the colour scheme and iframes to import the same header and footer on each page (the header contains a simple menu made up of HTML links to all the pages).
I've read that iframes can be simulated using CSS and that (for reasons I can't remember right now) this is the preferable way to go. I know when I looked at some CSS for doing this my brain just fried and I really wasn't convinced it was worth the hassle
So my question is 2 fold. Firstly, is there really any great advantage in using CSS frames over iframe and (b) I'd really like to see a (VERY) simple of a CSS frame along with the equivalent iframe (with some links to some very simple reference material if possible).
Many thanks in advance.
