I'd go one step further and say that about all you *can* do with frames as specified is misuse them. While the need for scrolling regions within (and outside of) an HTML doc is obvious, that doesn't obviate the shortcomings of NS frames. When it comes to integrating browser-side object state, focus policy and navigation idioms in a manner approaching consistency, frames fail dismally. The first cut of frames is yet another casualty of the rush to be first-to- market for product differentiation regardless of how using those features impacts users' data. -marc Is the feature gap going to be the missile gap of the 90's?
