    With frames you create a frameset and add one or more frames to it. The frameset itself has no content apart from the frames. The frames between them must fill the entire web page.

    With an iframe you can add it to an existing web page and have it display within the page at a specified spot. The rest of the web page is filled by the content of the page to which the iframe is attached.

    Its not frames and iframes you need to be aware of,

    but body elements and frameset elements. An html document has one or the other,
    and not both.
