The FRAME element is used to define individual frames that make up a FRAMESET. A frameset allows you to divide a web page into multiple windows which can be scrolled independently of one another.

Client-side code such as Javascript and the TARGET attribute allow frames to "talk" to each other. One of the most common uses of frames is to keep a navigation element at a set position on the screen while the user scrolls through a long section of content.

ID Identifies this tag to reference in script (program code)
CLASS Define the class used to render this element (defined by a style sheet)
TITLE A title that is associated with the element (displayed as a tooltip in Internet Explorer)
NAME The name attribute identifies the frame for reference through client-side scripting or by the TARGET attribute
LONGDESC Provides a lengthy description of the frame, it's purpose and what it contains
