@cindex frame visibility
A window frame may be @dfn{visible}, @dfn{invisible}, or
@dfn{iconified}. If it is visible, you can see its contents. If it is
iconified, the frame's contents do not appear on the screen, but an icon
does. If the frame is invisible, it doesn't show on the screen, not
even as an icon.

other windows cover it. If it is iconified, the frame's contents do

invisible, it doesn't show on the screen, not even as an icon.
Visibility is meaningless for terminal frames, since only the selected
one is actually displayed in any case.
