framesetSplitbar (Frameset Splitter Properties)

This element specifies the properties for the splitters associated with this frameset. A splitter is a horizontal or vertical line which visually separates the contents of one frame from another within a frameset.

If this element is omitted, then the default parameters for each of the child frameset properties shall be used for all splitters in this frameset.

[Example: Consider a frameset consisting of the following three frames:

The following properties define the presentation of the splitter bars within this frameset:

    <w:w w:val="90" />
    <w:color w:val="auto" />
  … </w:frameset>

The framesetSplitbar element specifies the properties for all splitters in this frameset; in this case, those properties are that the splitter must be 4.5 points (90 twentieths of a point) wide, and that the color of the splitter must be automatically determined via the attribute value of auto. end example]
