We are converting an application to a thin client web application.  Our
users are not very web savvy in some cases and while they are willing to
scroll some, they want long pages but want the header to stay put.  An
example of what we'd have in the header area would be the client's name and
brief information, along with quick and advanced search, and a few
navigational tabs.

There are disadvantages to frames and we cannot think of any other solution
so am throwing it open to this group.

Thanks for any and all help.
