frames - how can you tell?

How can you tell by looking if a site is built with frames or not? I know there are issues with them such that some designers prefer to avoid them at all costs - but what gives them away on the surface?

well, frames.

Look at a frames site and you'll see the navigation structure in a frame - usually on the left, the content in a frame in the centre, and other frames to the right and maybe underneath.

A content frame can scroll, whilst leaving the navigation frame static. It's an unmistakeable look, and you'll have seen lots of frames sites.

Here's a sample - click here reduce the window size to see how your browser inserts a scroll bar on the content frame, but leaves the navigation frame as it is.
