My generic copy-and-paste-to-Usenet:

  Frames cause many problems:
     * http://www.html-faq.com/htmlframes/?FramesAreEvil
     * http://www.useit.com/alertbox/9612.html
     * http://urlizer.com/00/688/
     * http://www.allmyfaqs.com/faq.pl?Problems_with_using_frames

   So it would be a good idea to switch to CSS for layout:
     * http://www.westciv.com/style_master/academy/css_tutorial/
     * http://www.glish.com/css/
     * http://www.w3c.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512/

   And also a good idea to switch to includes for shared content:
     * http://www.bignosebird.com/ssi.shtml
     * http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.include.php
     * http://david.us-lot.org/software-dolt.php

HTML email is a bit like using coloured paper and glitter ink on a CV.
