Not exactly. See the FAQ.

Only half of it, and only then out of necessity.
If I could avoid it, I would.

That's another major drawback with frames. You're
right, it's very messy trying to get your user back
into frames once they're out of them. One
workaround is to put a 'home' link on all your
framed pages which would take them back to the
framed home page, but it's untidy.

My solution is that I don't submit my framed
pages to the deep engines at all, only the main
index. I have plenty of other non-framed pages
on the site so it's not too much of an issue.
Like you, I don't want people to land on the
site via a page which should be framed.

Let's skip the politics eh? ;)
