We will soon be embarking on a redesign of one of our sites. This site
currently employes a right-hand navigation bar. The site, in general, has
navigation/architecture and content troubles. We welcome you to examine

Before starting the product strategy we would like to address the
right-hand navigation issue with the product manager. Since we have never
employed it ourselves, we are wondering if this is a new development in
navigation and layout design or if this was just a poor decision on the
part of the Web designers who last worked on this environment.

This is what we would like to know:
a. are there any studies out there that address righ-hand versus left-hand
b. what are the advantages, if any, to using right-hand versus left-hand

Thanks for your help!
