Great example of a good frameset layout. Very impressing. Particularly the 
resizable content frame.

You have already implemented something? We seem to have had the same kind of 
thought. That's interesting. I'm just reading through your Sciter manual 
pages...

But currently I'm not comfortable with the thought of intermixing a frames 
(not iframes) with content. How will resizing work? How do other elements 
affect flow layout?

Hmmm... I guess that would cause all kinds of Hyperlinks to be a bad idea...

Well, it's resizable frames, for instance (like given by Andrew's example).
