design question

Hello friends
I am desiging a site and I asked this other guy for help and he said to use frames before I use Flash, Applets or JavaScripts. What do you guys think? I have a long page that I am using a static menu on but he suggested using frames cause he says it would load quicker. Do you think that is correct?

thanks in advance

I used to code in frames, but honestly these days they are crud. I don't think load times are much of a concern as they used to be, as broadband or higher quality DUN lines are much more common in homes. Can you give a better mock of up what you are trying to accomplish?

Also, I have moved this to the coding and design section, welcome to OSNN :)

stay away from flash menus

Use CSS for layout.. tables where necessary after CSS

I agree completely. If you use frames then it sets your site back a decade. Use CSS and small Javascript libraries to achieve impressive visual effects. Check out Mootools for example.

I just have to say how adorable I think your avatar is!!

Frames can be useful in specific situations, but in general, I agree with everyone else ... they're not the best design decision.

If it's formatting you need, CSS and/or tables (It's a cheap answer, but really easy) can achieve most of what you want.

However, if you have a mockup and general explanation of what you're trying to DO, we might be able to help a bit more effectively.
