I have my main page pretty much completed here:

http://www.kingairinc.com

and the second page here:

http://www.kingairin.com/owner.hml

My question is what is the best way to make the navigation work on the site? I remember the old way to do this was with frames. Is this still common practice? Can you do the same thing with Div's? Or is it just better in my case to link the flash menu to open a whole page in the same IE window?

Thanks in advance,
Cyp

By reading the following thread, it appears the answer is building individual pages.

Does anyone concur?

What do you mean by 'make the navigation work'? UL and LI tags should be used to create the navigation semantically, as they are basically lists of links for your pages. If you are talking about the way you should implement it into your site then I'd recommend some form of include so that you can edit one file and have it change all of the pages with that include.

I wouldn't recommend using frames as they are not good coding these days and I believe the frame tag has be deprecated in todays standards unless you are creating a page with the 'frame' doctype?
