Web Standards and Accessibility Guide


Standard: HTML Frames will not be used on any Queen's University Web documents.

HTML frames have the potential to introduce navigation challenges for users of some adaptive technology, due to the way they are constructed. Usually, the content and navigation are on separate HTML documents, and then combined into a third (frame) document. However, since the content is always separate it makes it difficult for the screen reading software, as it may only place it's "focus" on one of the documents at any given time. Newer technologies (server scripting includes) have further made HTML frames both redundant as well as dated.
