Hi fellow Bestie. <g>
Thanks to Best.com's allowance of CGIs, I was able to learn Perl. The 
first CGI I wrote was to power a popup navigation menu. Maybe you can 
use something like that on each page? Takes up little space, and thus 
fits into any page design.
You can download a simple version from my web site (I've since added 
a parameter to indicate which popup menu, because I started using a 
"see also" menu in addition to my "vertical navigation" menu).

  Lynx user, so no like-a da frames ;)
