HTML noframes Tag

HTML <noframes>Tag: The HTML noframes tag is defined as a fall-back tag for the browsers. It doesn’t support frames. And it can contain all the HTML elements that you can find inside the <body> element of a normal HTML page. The <noframes> element can be used to link to a non-frameset version of the web site or to display a message to users that frames are required. And the <noframes> element goes inside the <frameset> element.


In case if you want to validate a page containing frames, be sure the <!DOCTYPE> is set to either “HTML Frameset DTD” or “XHTML Frameset DTD”. And this tag is not supported in HTML5.

Syntax: <noframes> Text </noframes>
