Why should I avoid frames in my Web site?

Some Web browsers don't support frames. For this reason, if you do decide to use frames, you should at least provide an additional non-frames version of your Web site.
Badly designed (i.e., most) sites with frames allow the documents inside a page's frames to change, while the URL for the page stays the same. Thus, documents inside frames are not properly bookmarkable, and search engines cannot properly index them.
Bookmarking or indexing will either point to a page which contains the wrong (framed) documents, or point to a document without the surrounding frames to give it a context. Why waste all of these valuable visits to your site?
Frames are dependent on screen size, so your page will sometimes look terrible on a differently sized screen. There is no reliable way for Web surfers to predict the behavior of a site which has frames. Clicking on something in frame A can cause frame B to update, or could cause frame C to update.
Frames waste valuable screen space. Once a document is constrained inside a frame, it is practically impossible for most Web surfers to pop that document out to use the entire window.
Frames are #1 in the Top Ten Mistakes in Web Design.

There are many more reasons to avoid frames.

What is 'accessibility' and why is it important?

Accessibility is about making your website available and understandable for everyone, including users with disabilities. W3 explains it in a great way at the Web Accessibility Initiative.

This template allows visitors to use the following accesskeys:
1 - Back to top | 2 - Skip to site menu | 3 - Skip to main content | 4 - Return to index.html

You can easily change these or add more accesskeys to make the site fit your needs, for example to allow easy access to each site menu link. Adding a logical tab order is recommended! And finally: the template allows browser-based font resizing, making sure that site visitors can enlarge the font size without breaking the page layout in any way.
