they are part of the HTML spec... so, conforming browsers (NN6, NN7, Opera I think, etc) all have iframe support. The real problem is NN < 6 (of which there are still plenty out there) and the lesser know and non-visual browsers. > Although I can't vouch for the latest Netscape, I know that the older > versions simply ignore the <iFRAME...> tag, and leave a blank spot in its > place. > > If you know that your client base will ever only use IE, then go for > it. Otherwise, you'll have to avoid the iframe. That sounds a little harsh! You can put a message in place of the iframe, for those who don't support it. <iframe src="" blah blah> Sorry, your browser does not support iframes, to view the content of this frame, <a href="">click here</a>. </iframe> Or better still, you can actually PUT SOME CONTENT IN THERE. I have an iframe which lists multiple tour dates for a band, sorted in date order... if the iframe can be used, the user gets ALL upcomming gigs ina scroller, otherwise they just get the next 3 (using approximately the same amount of space), with a link to view all gigs. iframes CAN work in many cases, if you think about it.
