Frame-based layout via Style Sheets




As promised the W3C staff have come up with a proposal for specifying
a rich range of document layouts based upon specifying frames in the
style sheet.  The approach extends CSS to allow authors to specify
frames, layout policies and which elements are flowed into what frames.
Frames can be filled from the same document or via URLS from external
sources. Hypertext links can be targeted at frames without changes to
the HTML markup. The layout info is decoupled from the document markup
allowing for greater flexibility in using the same content for different
layout styles. See:

I look forward to discussing this and alternative proposals.
