frontpage "shared borders" equivalent in Dw - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi, I'm trying out Dreamweaver MX and I'm adapting to the new environment after using Frontpage. Basically, I wanted to know if there's an equivalent to the Frontpage "shared borders" in Dreamweaver. Is it using frames? Thanks Roma...

    Default frontpage "shared borders" equivalent in Dw

    Hi,

    Default Re: frontpage "shared borders" equivalent in Dw

    v:

    In a sense it would be using frames but only a remote sense.

    The best equivalent in DW would be a Template.

    In FP your shared borders are created by FP and automatically placed on
    every page in the site. Since this is the case your options are somewhat
    limited and inflexible.

    In DW you create a template (that contains *all* the common layout elements
    on the page, including navigation, masthead, boilerplate, etc.) and you do
    it any way you want. This file is saved as a Template. New pages are
    created from the template using FILE | New > Templates > Site > Template
    Name > Create. This new page contains all of the common elements on the
    Template and can have unique content loaded into the editable regions.
    Later, if you make a change to the non-editable region of the Template, all
    child pages are automatically updated. To read more about Templates,
    consult the DMX F1 help, or the Macromedia Technotes at the link in my sig.
    To get the lowdown on Templates, consider my book with Brad Halstead as an
    option -
