It is true that the frameset page will not have any "content" in it, which would probably make it rank very low in the
search engines.

Other big concerns you need to be thinking about are:
-You can't bookmark specific pages.
-If a search engine does find a specific page, it won't be encapsulated in the frameset.
-Many Surfers just plain HATE frames
There aren't too many valid reasons why you should use frames(most reasons only help the webmaster, not the web surfer), so be careful in making your decision.

Hope this helps.
