Hasan,

If the best resources are examples then I suggest you look at the way that
http://www.rachelmello.com is put together - the noframes implementation
there I think shows what sort of thing is required.

An alternative is an old bit of tutorial stuff I wrote at
http://www.iii.rmit.edu.au/~charles/tuts/FRAMES.HTM (incidentally I would
appreciate any feedback on that material - I know it has a number of bugs but
I am starting to update it at last.

The basic idea is to put links in the noframes area to the important parts of
the site, so people can navigate from there to the content. In addition,
having navigation structures at the bottom of each content page will make the
site much nicer to use. You can place these inside a noframes element and
they should not be rendered by a browser that renders frames.

Cheers

Charles McCN

  If anyone could point us to resources that can help us achieve the above it 
  would be a great help.
