Yes.  But obviously resizing an element affects the flow and layout of all
elements following it.  So resizing on element could easily have the effect
of resizing following elements.

The basic outline of how you would simulate a frameset, is to use the OBJECT
tag to "load" the external frames, and then use CSS to set the width and
height of the OBJECTS, set overflow:scroll if you want scroll bars on the
"frames", and set resizer:both if you want them to be resizable by the
traditional mechanism of clicking on their borders etc.
