framing
The act of displaying another company's Web page within a bordered area of a website — similar to the picture-in-picture feature offered on some televisions. For example, when a user enters a search engine request, the search engine might display the contents of an online store within the search engine's website, framed by the search engine's text and logos. When a Web page is framed within another website, the URL or domain name of the framed Web page is usually not displayed and users are not able to bookmark that site. (See also: URL, domain name)

framing
A web technology which allows users to view multiple web pages on a single display screen. A hyperlink is created from one website to the pages of another website whose pages are "framed" by the linking site. As far as the user is concerned, the web page location and other windows remain static while the user views other sites through the frames. This allows for user interaction without having to leave the original, linking site. The effect is that the content of the linked site looks as though it is part of the framing website.
framing
USA
A web technology for displaying multiple HTML documents in separate viewing panes (frames) on a single web page. For example, many websites use framing to display a common heading or sidebar on multiple pages, or to display a series of banner ads from a queue. A more controversial use of framing involves appropriation by one website of one or more frames from different websites, where the appropriated frames are displayed (framed) within pages of the appropriating website (under the control of that website's owner). For example, a blogger can appropriate articles from various news sites and frame them within pages of the blog, along with the blog's own headings, ads and other frames (compare to linking).
