The frame properties allow you to define settings for each frame. The
settings in the frame specify how the frame is formatted and define defaults
for the text format of the cells in the frame. These settings may be inherited
from the page and they will be
cascaded to the contained tables and cells.

- Frame Here properties are set that are special to frames,
and that will not cascade.
- Text Text formatting properties. These are inherited from
the page and will be cascaded down to the tables and cells. see the text properties.
- Border The settings for frame borders.
