The marginheight and marginwidth attributes allow a value in pixels to control the height and width of frame margins.
The noresize attribute fixes the frame into position so the user can't move the frame edges.
The scrolling attribute enables you to control the appearance of a scrollbar within a frame. This is important if you've fixed the size of your frame and the content within that frame is longer than the frame itself. There are three values for scrolling: yes (which forces a scrollbar at all times), no (which disallows a scrollbar completely), and auto (which automatically puts a scrollbar into the frame if it is necessary).
Example 6-8 shows a frameset document with margin, resize, and scroll controls in place.
Example 6-8. Managing margins, resizing, and scrolling in frames
<frameset cols="200, *"> <frame src="menu.html" marginheight="5" marginwidth="5" noresize="noresize" scrolling="yes" /> <frame src="main.html" marginheight="9" marginwidth="9" noresize="noresize" scrolling="yes" /> </frameset>
Figure 6-6 shows the results.
