HTML element: <frame>

Availability

Partial support as of BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.

Full support as of BlackBerry Device Software version 4.6

The <frame> element identifies the content to be displayed in a single pane of a frameset.

Differences between HTML, XHTML, and XHTML-MP

In HTML, the <frame> element is not closed. To conform to XHTML, you must properly close the <frame> element.

XHMTL-MP does not support frames.

Considerations

Although the <frame> element is supported by the browser, this is mainly to support content designed for desktop browsers. You should not include frames in content designed for the BlackBerry device.
