Let's say I have a header I want to use and a left column full of menus. When I click those menu it'll show something to the right column. When I click links in the right column it'll load up new data, but doesn't reload the header or menus on the left. Are they just using frames without the scroll?

I see a lot of possibilities:
1. It could be done through PHP includes.
2. You're right the page could be done through frames/iframe.
3. The page is actually refreshing, but the header and left content is the same which might have decieve our vision.
4. Or....it might have been this trick (http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/index.htm).

See if it helps :D

<iframes> are the logical choice (not <frame>, but <iframe>)

You can google it for tutorials.

Rangana also has a good point about refreshing a page that has
everything in the same place ... it really doesn't appear to refresh
even though it does.

But <iframe> will allow only a section of the page to refresh (change content).

Others will scoff at <iframe>, but I have had no problems with SEO or browsers.
I use them all the time ... works great.
