The _functionality_ of frames will doubtless be included in a future HTML spec, but the current way Netscape and Microsoft implement them is severely broken. The draft sepc on how to do frames with style sheets is more functional and less dangerous than the current implementations. While NS/MS extensions like "center" and "font" may be objected to on philosophical grounds, the technical reality is that they are harmless to existing implementations. "frameset" is not harmless--it completely breaks anything but NSN2+ & MSIE3+.
