Evil HTML frames Here's a brilliant example for why frames are evil and should be avoided as much as possible. This site uses about four of them making it scattered with scoll lists.

This site is also quite stupid in that there's a Javascript alert() that pops up every time you roll the mouse over any image. I don't know why because if you need download them you can by simply viewing the source code of the page. What happens is that the mouse is in the centre of the page and when you try to move the mouse across to the menu on the left you're bound to roll over another image and that will force you to move the mouse back to the centre to cancel the Javascript alert.

Think again David.
