Yes, framesets are not supported in HTML5. I wouldn't use them.

The nearest equivalent are iframes, or use neither and consider, if appropriate, dynamically loading some content into a page with Ajax calls.

..in the Ajax model, web applications are able to make quick, incremental updates to the user interface without reloading the entire browser page. This makes the application faster and more responsive to user actions.

Actually I' not asking that. I'm a final year student doing my major project. In order to divide my webpage I'm using frameset tag in my prj. But I'm scared that in future it will be disabled since HTML5 does not supports it. However my project is a Realtime project, i have to handle this problem. So suggest me some ideas about the tag that i have to prefer rather than the frameset tag. I include my design that how i should used tag. $

I have already suggested iframes as an alternative to frameset.

The internet is a very slowly-changing organism and, unless you use an HTML5 DOCTYPE, you're page is not going to break anytime soon. Framesets were deprecated for a reason though, and they are a poor choice.

Your best bet is follow andrewsw's advice and use iframes or ajax content into the page. And even better advice is don't use an iframe. try to just ajax the content in when needed. Which you would want to use jquery for since it just makes it simple to do and not having a full understanding of ajax the quick and easy use of jquery will help get what you needed done quicker.

Framesets and "frame-styled" developments are a thing of the past, mostly due to their vulnerable nature. So as pointed out, ajax is the way to go and some framework - there are many out there, can take the pain of learning and applying it. The only thing I'm wondering is how did you got to framesets in the first place :sweatdrop:

Hmmm...You are right. I have searched and find some suggestions of using load() feature of JQuery for including many webpages in same page. Is my decision is right or not? Reply soon guys..........

Just keep in mind that .load does not support cross domain requests. You would need to use .Ajax and allow cross domain requests.

HTML 4 (introduced in 1997) replaced both frameset and iframe with the <object> tag. It did not become possible to actually make that substitution though until after IE7 died as that and earlier versions of IE did not support the object tag correctly.

Since IE7 is now dead you can easily incorporate HTML from multiple sources into the same page using the object tag without needing any Javascript/jQuery at all.
