HTML5 Frames Templates

These HTML5 frames templates use HTML5 and CSS to achieve that "frames" effect — without using any frames or frameset elements.

Why is this important? Traditionally, frames based websites used the frames or frameset tags to achieve the separate frames. Problem is, these elements are no longer supported in HTML. Starting from HTML5, these elements are obsolete. This means that if you need to create that "frames" effect, you need to use a method that doesn't use the traditional frames and frameset elements.

The following templates have been created without a frames or frameset element in sight. They use the CSS overflow property to achieve scrolling by using either overflow:scroll or overflow:auto.
