As we carry this thread into the future and farther from topicality.

I just have to jump in here.  Frames are often used as navigational
aides, and that is what they do best.  Just make sure your content
documents stand on their own and interlink.  This is easily accomplished
with HTML and JavaScript including NOSCRIPT tags.

For example, use JS to document.write a navigational header only IF the
doc is loaded in a top level window.  Have the same header in a NOSCRIPT
tag for no-JS browsers.  The JS header does not appear when the doc is
loaded into a frameset, but appears outside of it or woth JS off.

Problem solved.
