I have tried in the past to use stylesheets to achieve the same effect
as frames, but have not succeeded - I can't get the menu at the side
to stay still while the main body scrolls, and I can't get the frames
to take up the whole screen if there isn't enough content.

Are there any tutorials anywhere explaining how to go about this?

Thanks,

Ian
