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
