Current navigation frame is simple to use and long table lists don't
reset their scroll position when I change tab - which we would lose if
DIVs were introduced, unless we start using a multitude of hacks to
work around it. What are the advantages of removing frames, aside from
using not-cool-feature that currently works well for us?
