Syntax

marginheight="Height in pixels"

Description

This is a very rudimentary styling attribute that allows you to specify a height in pixels between the content and the top and bottom of the frame. Note that you cannot set a different value for the top and bottom - one size fits all here.

Example

The header frame has a small amount of margin (top/bottom) applied, the main frame a little more:

<frameset rows="100,*" >
  <frame src="header.html" frameborder="1" marginheight="5"/>
  <frame src="home.html" frameborder="0" marginheight="20"/>
</frameset>

Value

Height in pixels.

Every browser listed supports this attribute.

However, just because it’s supported it doesn’t mean you should use it! Applying a marginheight is not the best way to set styles like this - you are better off using Cascading Style Sheets to define how pages should look within a frame (you also have the benefit of being able to set different values for a document’s top and bottom margins in CSS).
