HTML noframes Tag: Main Tips
noframestag was used as a fallback for browsers that did not support the <frame> element.
- It had to be placed within the <frameset> element.
- In HTML5, frames are not supported.
<noframes>have been made obsolete.
Theory is great, but we recommend digging deeper!
Usage of HTML <noframes> Tags
Before it was deprecated, you could have used HTML
<noframes> tags to wrap fallback content for the browsers which did not support the
<frameset cols="300, *"> <frame src="frame_a.htm"> <frame src="frame_b.htm"> <noframes> <body>Frames element is not supported by this browser.</body> </noframes> </frame> </frame> </frameset>
Usually, it was used in one of these two ways:
- To inform the user their browser does not support frames
- To present an alternative page version with similar functionalities available
Tip: in HTML5, frames are not supported - however, you may use <iframe> as an alternative.
