<noframes> (No Frame Support Content)


This element is used to indicate alternative content to be displayed on browsers that do not support frames.

Standard Syntax



<noframes
class="class name(s)"
dir="ltr | rtl"
id="unique alphanumeric identifier"
lang="language code"
style="style information"
title="advisory text"

Alternative content for non-frame-supporting browsers

</noframes>

Events Defined by Internet Explorer


onreadystatechange

Example


<frameset rows="100,*">
<frame src="controls.html" name="frame1" id="frame1" >
<frame src="content.html" name="frame2" id="frame2">
  <noframes>
    Sorry, this browser does not support frames.
  </noframes>
</frameset>

Compatibility


HTML 4, 4.01 (transitional and frameset)
XHTML 1.0 (transitional and frameset)
Internet Explorer 2, 3, 4, 5, 5.5, 6
Netscape 2, 3, 4 – 4.7, 6, 7
Opera 4 – 7

Notes


This element should be used within the scope of the frameset element.

The benefit of events and sophisticated attributes, such as style, is unclear for browsers that would use content within <noframes>, given that older browsers that don't support frames probably would not support these features.
