Can CSS really replace FRAMES?


CSS and Frames

I have a complex layout site done with frames, I knew the time would come when
a "no_frame" duplicate would have to be done and this is approaching Now I
read articles claiming CSS can replace frames and I wonder how true this is
These articles highlight the bad points of frames but don't do the same for CSS
and I am reluctant to give it a try and find out I have wasted my time
I hope to be advised by the
experts.

Here is the layout:
<html><body><pre>
___________________________________________________________________

</pre></body></html>
The main feature is a house window frame occupying most of the screen starting
at the bottom left corner of the screen.
With frames, this house window frame has to be divided into 11 .gif images as
you can guess: top left corner, top, top right corner, left side, left panel,
middle, right panel,right side, bottom left corner, bottom, bottom right corner.

There is only one "frame" that is fixed in the top left corner.

So my questions are: can CSS really replace frames in this case?
Can I accomplish the same result using css and make the site easier to access?

Thank you for your help.

no idea what that mess of acsii is meant to be... (use a [code] box next time...) but css can replace frames nearly always. two superb css resources i use a lot are:
