It depends on the particular application. For my Walter's Web page, frames
are purely a presentational device for a single page. HOWEVER, for my Osax
Reference page, multiple documents are a REQUIREMENT. Why? Well, you see,
the ONLY reason I converted that page into a frameset is because the size
of the reference is going to grow at least tenfold, and I don't want to
force users to load a 100K page!!! If all was in a single document, it
would be a horrible experience for anyone not on a T1 connection.
