Next we'll try a couple minor effects. Not all of them work with all browsers though. If the browser doesn't understand the attribute, it will just ignore it.

First we can change the thickness of the borders.

<FRAMESET COLS="154,*" BORDER=20>
  <FRAMESET ROWS="170,*">
    <FRAME SRC="world.gif" WIDTH=146 HEIGHT=162 SCROLLING=NO MARGINWIDTH=1 MARGINHEIGHT=1>
    <FRAME SRC="lisa.html">
  </FRAMESET>
  <FRAME SRC="terri.html">
</FRAMESET>

We can change the color of the borders.

<FRAMESET COLS="154,*" BORDER=20 BORDERCOLOR="#FFOOOO">
  <FRAMESET ROWS="170,*">
    <FRAME SRC="world.gif" WIDTH=146 HEIGHT=162 SCROLLING=NO MARGINWIDTH=1 MARGINHEIGHT=1>
    <FRAME SRC="lisa.html">
  </FRAMESET>
  <FRAME SRC="terri.html">
</FRAMESET>

We can turn off borders for individual <FRAMESET>s with FRAMEBORDER.

<FRAMESET COLS="154,*" BORDER=20 BORDERCOLOR="#FFOOOO">
  <FRAMESET ROWS="170,*" FRAMEBORDER=NO>
    <FRAME SRC="world.gif" WIDTH=146 HEIGHT=162 SCROLLING=NO MARGINWIDTH=1 MARGINHEIGHT=1>
    <FRAME SRC="lisa.html">
  </FRAMESET>
  <FRAME SRC="terri.html">
</FRAMESET>

FAQ: I try to make my frames with no borders, but with Browser-A, a thin line still appears between the frames. How do I make it go away?
A: Under most circumstances those thin lines can be eliminated. Look here for a simple solution.

We can prevent the viewer from resizing a frame. Unless you have a very unusual circumstance, there really is no reason to use this attribute.

<FRAMESET COLS="154,*" BORDER=20 BORDERCOLOR="#FFOOOO">
  <FRAMESET ROWS="170,*" FRAMEBORDER=NO >
    <FRAME SRC="world.gif" WIDTH=146 HEIGHT=162 SCROLLING=NO MARGINWIDTH=1 MARGINHEIGHT=1>
    <FRAME SRC="lisa.html">
  </FRAMESET>
  <FRAME SRC="terri.html" NORESIZE>
</FRAMESET>
