examples are good. Ideally they should give an introduction of what  
the tester is testing for, a brief explanation and the actual method  
used to test and desired output




HTML frames allow authors to present documents in multiple views,  
which may be independent windows or subwindows. These are commonly  
found to be vulnerable, and if the web application allows iframes,  
there could be further XSS vulnerabilities present

Testing for IFRAME vulnerabilities:
Using a proxy, recreate the IFRAME code with following code
<IFRAME SRC="javascript:alert(;'OWASP IFRAME XSS Test');"></IFRAME>

Result Expected:
A alert box with the caption "OWASP IFRAME XSS Test" should appear
