Dear All

Thought that I would run something past you.
The Sedgwick Group (large financial company based in London) website has
been redesigned.

The proposed new design used frames. One ran a menu down the right of the
browser, and this targeted the larger left-hand frame. Frames were suddenly
dropped from the project.

The site now uses one window, without frames. However, the menu is still
reproduced on the right of the window. This means that the menu now scrolls
with the rest of the information.

The menu is repeated again and again down the right of the screen, in a
table. This means that the menu scrolls with the text, but is always
available - since it is repeated.

This seems crazy, but I thought that some of you may have other comments -
or in fact research to support my opinion.

Take a look
