Friday June 22

•Frames vs Frameless for class web pages and web courses

– Mozilla not frame compatable

– ReadyGo model uses frames

•Navigation is easier to find with frames

– If Dreamweaver is on all my machines, than it can be used to revise and
reuse templates with frames

– Checked many commercial webs…most are frameless

– From what other NSC iisme fellows said, it seems that I work in the most
focused and task-oriented dept. Many others talk how they are in places
where most talk is NOT job related. I find that good!
