One nav bar for entire site

P: n/a
Is there a solution to this problem without resorting to Frames using
CSS? Can I use an iFrame to simulate that behavior or does that defeat
the purpose of accessibility and using CSS?

Thanks.

No. Including content isn't the job of CSS.

An iframe is a frame.

Thanks the answer. I guess I should have been a little more specific.

I wanted to know if there were any solutions to using Frames for
navigation when switching to a CSS/XHTML driven site to simplify
maintaining a site with many hundreds of pages.

I hope I understood your reply. It looks like there really isn't any
practical solution to this other than staying with a frame based
layout without resorting to a server based solution.

Am I right?

Thanks.

Lots, many of them are described at the URI I provided.

No. The very first suggestion on that page doesn't resort to a server based
solution. (And that said, there is nothing wrong in using a server based
solution, and nothing difficult or expensive in getting hosting that
supports such a solution).

[1] If you don't understand the term, Google it, don't ignore it.
