What’s the problem with “frames technology”? Frames technology is a web page coding technology which dedicates different parts (“frames”) of the browser window for different purposes, such as a header, a list of menu choices, a display of data, etc.There are several reasons why this coding technology is not ideal, but the one which bothers this webmaster the most has to do with printing. In many situations, only one frame is printed when the viewer asks for a printout of the web page – invariably NOT the one the viewer is most interested in. If viewing a website which uses frames technology, make sure the cursor is active in the area (i.e., having been clicked while located in the area) you are most interested in when you ask for a printout.
