    Inspired by a thread about frames I just read...

    Anyone want to volunteer an opinion or two on Iframes? I seem to have an obsession with them lately and I'm currently using one on my website.

    For myself, I use Iframes along with tables, I don't like the idea of a page reloading the same content over and over. I pet peeve of mine I guess.

    I'm just wondering really if I should cut it out with them or not...

    IMO you should avoid iframes except where there's no real alternative, keeping in mind that some older browsers don't support them.

    Include files make life so much easier. I put all of my exterior layout into one include file (and CSS sheet and JScript when necessary) and my of each page into its own page, making sure to call the include file. This is assuming of course you're trying to find a quick easy way to create a template-based website such as WDF.

    For the longest time, I avoided iframes because I was obsessed about making my site work in older versions of Netscape. However, the current design I have now litterally would not work with traditional frames (what worked for one browser didn't for another), so I decided to just go for iframes. I felt guilty about it, but after checking my stats, I found that most of my viewers use IE, so it doesn't matter too much. Of course, if most visitors to my site used old browsers, then I would say nay to iframes. So my opinion concering iframes is 1) are they the best option for your current design; 2) are most of your viewers using browsers that support them?
