Hmmm, can you think of any browser that supports BODY-attributes but no frames ?
As far as I'm concerned, the only use for the NOFRAMES-Tag is for text-only
browsers like Lynx. If you check the attributes on BODY, you'll see that none
of these actually apply...

Yes, that's correct. It also works rather nicely and I think it's far more
intuitive than having to use five files instead of five for three frames.

Hope this helps out,
