    I don't see many about but currently i think it would be perfect for my website. I made a simple bit of javascript code which automatically extends it depending on the length. Thus no scroll bar.

    I was wondering what people thought of them, are they a good thing to use in web design? Are there any flaws i need to know about?

    I use <iframes> all the time, and with no problems between
    browsers and no CSS problems. PHP includes are best when
    dealing with content, but when you don't want the page to
    refresh each time, <iframes> work great. And for images,
    there are CSS tricks to center them vertically inside an <iframe>.
    Thus, you still don't need to use tables.

    As with frames, I've learned not to like iframes much. They can be useful in certain very limited circumstances, but they usually aren't. Search around for previous threads on this issue -- there have been many, and they all have people who explian what the issues with iframes are.

    I prefer to use scrolling <div> tags rather than iframes (even though they do different things, i know, i know) because i always found i got that silly horizontal scroll bar in IE 5.5 with iframes.
    slightly off subject there...

    personally, ajax and php includes cover all of the things that iframes can do, plus includes work alot better for search engines thus increasing your rank
