    Nothing much is said about frames these days. Is it worth Learning how they work or jump right onto a more modern approach?

    better to know it and not need it, then to need it and not know it.

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    Look at it this way, frames, framsets, and iframes are about 0.1% of webdesign knowledge that you will need to know. If you already have a firm grasp on basic HTML and understand what a tag and attribute is, then frames won't be an issue.

    It is a simple concept to learn and know. They aren't used much nowadays and I'm not sure they help with SEO at all, they may even hurt it, I'd look into that before staying with frames.

    Frames can make it difficult for search engines to decide what your individual pages are all about, and more difficult for the search engine spiders to actually follow the links within your website.

    If you absolutely have to use frames, read THIS article about how to improve your SEO for framed sites.
