Lesson No.1 Web Publishing - Frames

Web Publishing – Creation of web sites/web pages and storing them on Web servers on Internet for viewing to public.

Web server – It is a high configuration computer on Internet that stores web sites and serves web pages to clients on request.

Web Browser – It is a software program used to browse web pages. E.g Chrome, IE, Opera, Netscape navigator, Mozilla Firefox

Web site – It is a collection of web pages on a particular subject e.g.

Homepage – The first web page that is displayed when you visit a website.

It is used to divide the browser window into several parts through which we can see more than one web page at a time.
Each HTML document is called frame.

To create frames tags used are:

            <TITLE>frame example</TITLE>
   <frameset  rows="25%,50%,25%">
          <frame src="web1.htm">
         <frame src="web2.htm">        
         <frame src="web3.htm">

  •  Each frameset defines a set of rows or columns.
