HTML Framesets are a depricated feature that provide page layout allowing several web pages to be organized into a single web browser window. The individual sections of the window are divided into subwindows, each rendering a separate web page. This can be handy for producing a left hand side navigation that always remains while the content on the right hand side changes. Using framesets, you need to use the 'target' command within the pages to target the correct frame.

The parent document that 'contains' the two child documents should have a DOCTYPE of "XHTML Frameset DTD".

	<frameset cols="30%,*%">
	   <frame src="./leftside_frame.html" name="navigation" />
	   <frame src="./rightside_frame.html" name="content" />
