Eisbruchs -at- aol -dot- com asks about unchanging urls in address windows:
What is going on on websites structured like
this? Why doesn't each page have a unique
address? If I want to direct someone to
a specific page on this website, do I need to
tell them which options to click to get to
the desired page? Or is there any more direct
way to get them to the page in question?

They're probably using frames. So, the first page of the site is the "parent" frame, and each page you jump to is in a "child" frame. That's the only way I can think of off hand. As for bookmarking specific pages I don't know if you can do that. What you can do is do a view source to track the linking, and then just enter the correct path for the correct page in the address window. Does that make sense?
