Well from an acccessibility standpoint I really like frames when they are
properly labeled. Makes it easier to move through the content. The important
thing is that they should be consistent in terms of their content and should
have meaningful labels. But then I really prefer them as a screen reader
user if you have a lot of content on the page.

That's two of us. I would add that I am "anti frames" as well.
The Seattle School district web site isn't really one website, but several
hundred (each individual school is responsible for it's own site), with
several thousand individual pages within. Currently the Seattle School
District, indeed the State Office of the Superintendent of Public
Instruction, has no comprehensive set of accessible design guideline
requirements for *any* of it's web sites.
