What does this code snippet mean?

If you need to modify the iFrame code snippet, here is a breakdown to understand what each attribute is and what can be changed.

Specifies the beginning of the iFrame

Specifies the website URL that contains the content you wish to embed into your page.

This is the title of the iFrame to help screen readers and search engines understand the content being pulled in.

Specifies the width of the iFrame. This should always be set to 100% to allow for scalability in multiple device screens.

Specifies the height of the iFrame. This can be set to a fixed pixel height and left alone or manually altered to display everything in the iFrame without activating a scroll bar.

Adds a border around the frame that equals the iFrame’s width and height. 0 = no border. 1 would display a 1 pixel border. It is recommended to keep this set to 0.

Specifies the close of the iFrame.
