  • FrameBox[ box ] displays with a frame drawn around box.
  • In StandardForm and InputForm, FrameBox is by default ignored, so that FrameBox[ box ] is interpreted just as box would be.
  • In StandardForm, explicit FrameBox objects are output literally. You can use DisplayForm to see the display form of such objects.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.10.
  • See also: StyleBox, CellFrame, ColumnLines, RowLines.
