If you have to do it this way, and like everyone else I don't recommend it, then you could help the SEO by adding the pages in link tags to the head.

see http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_link.asp for more info.

The .net programmer could make the form controls server side
but would putting a token list of the links in the footer
solve the seo problems at all?

Theres no way of breaking down the navigation into smaller
chunks without creating a mystery meat situation.

The brothercake dhtml menus seem like an option/last resort-
but can a dhtml or css drop down menu force the page to scroll while  a user
follows a long list of links with the mouse?


Here was the simple method that i suggested..
but the client has strong opinions against scrolling.

Here was another suggestion that i thought might work
but they are not impressed. (view in ie)
