If one does their web site authoring and development on their PC, as I do,
and developes documents on a stage-by-stage, visualizing basis, then using
server-side includes is not an option. Because it is not possible to
visualize the impact of server-side includes on documents created on ones PC
( unless one wants to run a full server on his PC).
Also, server-side includes change the way one names files from .htm or .html
to .shtml extensions, so that the server knows which documents to parse,
looking for includes.
Also, it is not possible for client-side mouse actions to influence which
modules are inserted when one uses server-side includes. However, with
displayed in the IFRAME with a simple mouse-click.
What I was seeking with this IFRAME question is if other are finding
problems with IFRAME or limitations or benefits ?
I know one limitation that I have experienced and do not know why it happens
is this: the page counters on documents included in an IFRAME do not seem to
increment in a reliable way. Whereas, the same document do increment
reliably outside the IFRAME use.
I have heard that the search engines do not rank material inside IFRAMES as
high as if it were mainstream document material.
But, are there other limitations or benefits to IFRAME use?

Have any of you decided to switch away from FP INCLUDE PAGE and start
to use IFRAME instead?
Have any of you tried to switch to using IFRAME for includes but found
reasons shy this is not a good idea?
The optimal way is to use server-side includes. Anything else usually
'includes' problems of one kind or another.
Infinity can have limits.
