    please help with frames website


    I went to a website design lessons page that is for frames websites. the one spot that stumps me is this line of code: target="main". well I looked everywhere that I can think of online to find the answer that I needed (pn this). and I cant find anything other than use: <frame src ="">. and I already put that line in my index.html from the lesons page for just my "main page" and my "navigation page". so now what can I do?

    You need to first understand the reason you are using <frame> or <iframe> (inline frame). Usually, there is never a reason to use them in the first place.

    The target has to do with where the links will focus. This site explains it fairly well:
    Frames targets. How to target a link to a window.

    I have never seen the target property called "main".

    In my opinion, ignore or pass up the tutorials on frames that you are getting in your design lessons. It seems like your lessons are old and obsolete.

    The last frame I used was <iframe> and it was only for an embedded Google map ... which is the only place I've seen it in the last 5 years.
