This may seem odd; but someone (not a tech writer) writing the product
specs for an internet site we're developing for a client called a row
of links the "toolbar." Unfortunately the term stuck, even though the
row of plain text links looks nothing like a toolbar. Later on a tech
writer went in to rewrite the product specs; but it was too late;
everyone expected "toolbar."

I am writing Internet instructions for novice users and am looking for
non-technical terms to describe the non-changing choices within the
navational frame at the top of each page and those within the changing frame
located at the left-hand side of each page.

I've tried vertical list of links on the left-hand side of each page,
navigational buttons/menus at the top of of each page, ...

Everything sounds cumbersome and overly complicated. Anyone have any
ideas or know of a good book?

Thanks,
Shannon Kelly
