yes, you are right, it's an old issue. and it's a matter of good
design, not so much of language specification.

i avoid frames and i don't believe i'm missing out on
anything. most people i know who used to design frame-oriented
sites, have turned to non-frame design. you may also
notice that all major search portals use non-frame design.

may i suggest the interesting usability guidelines
presented at: www.useit.com

good luck
