Explanation of attributes
class**: used to state which class(es) the element belongs to. It is possible to indicate more than one class for an element by separating each class name with a space character. This attribute is normally used in combination with a stylesheet in order to associate the elements with particular styles defined within the stylesheet.
cols**: used to specify both the number of columns and their individual widths. The widths can be specified as percentages, pixels or as a wildcard value. For example, <frameset cols="10%,200,*"> would declare a frameset comprising of one column with a width of 10% of the total page, a second column 200 pixels wide, and a final column taking all of the remaining space.
id**: used to specify a unique alphanumeric identifier to the element. This is usually used in combination with stylesheets in order to apply a style to one particular instance of an element. Only one element, regardless of type, can be given a particular id.
rows**: used to specify both the number of rows and their individual heights. The heights can be specified as percentages, pixels or as a wildcard value. For example, <frameset rows="10%,200,*"> would declare a frameset comprising of one row with a height of 10% of the total page, a second row 200 pixels high, and a final row taking all of the remaining space.
style**: used to specify an inline style to apply to the element. The styles defined here override the styles declared in the header section.
title**: used to define an advisory text that may be displayed as a tooltip when a mouse is used to hover over the element.
