You obviously didn't read the original poster's message and have latched on to a rather unsuitable subject line. The original request was for methods of structuring a web site in manageable chunks that might also minimise scrolling. If we are follow your example, we may as well all give up now and go home. The - let's not design anything for the web, it can't be done! - attitude annoys me intensely and, if in the future, you can't form a more constructive reply, please don't bother.
