Definition and Usage

The <frame> tag is not supported in HTML5.

The longdesc attribute specifies a URL to a page that contains a long description of the content of a frame.

Tip: The longdesc attribute is so poorly supported that it should not be used. To offer a long description of a frame (if necessary), simply create a link (that is visible to anyone) to a page with the description.
