    Not to be disparaging, but a better question might be, "Why weren't frames deprecated well before that?"

    The <object> tag can do everything that frames can do and a lot more (except in Internet Explorer which does not yet support the object tag properly).

    Frames are deprecated because they were replaced by objects.

    Please don't edit your question. This might be a valid search in the future. Frames aren't neccessarily depreciated but it was a 90's technique which looked good back then. Noone used it because semantic markup came into play..along with the removal of table layouts unless it is tabular data...yet people don't listen to that.

    Yes, frames are officially deprecated by W3C, since the corresponding element types (including iframe) aren't present in the Strict DTDs (which is what W3C strongly recommends for all new documents).

    Breathe as much as you like, by all means.
    Everyone has the right to be wrong, occasionally. It's just my habit to correct factual errors if I encounter them. An annoying habit, I know.

    my friend tried telling me "padding was outside spacing between elements. But it changes with each DTD". I said I'd disagree with that to the grave.

    I explained poorly, in short terms, he thought padding was margin, and margin was padding.
