I'm writing the code for a friends webpage and they asked that I use frames. Now I've heard people complain that frames are a pain for many different reasons but I've never really seen an issue with them if they are used correctly. I actually enjoy that a single frame will change on a click versus the entire page needing to be downloaded once again simply to change three lines.
From what I've gotten from the person, they want a top frame to hold the name of the club, a lower frame that holds some important references, and in the middle to split that into a links frame and the main loading frame.
Anyway, I just wanted to know everyone's opinions on this and what you would suggest I add since I'm probably stuck using frames no matter what (ignore the obvious noframe and breaking out of the frames).
Also, what's your opinion on the iframes. I've heard people dislike them as well cause they mess up the page, but I try to use them for small things like a slide show of pictures, so I don't see how that's necessarily a bad use considering that prevents the user from having to wait as all 100 photos load. Yes, I know I could use a photo hosting site to handle the slide show, but that's just one example that I can think of.
