The reason for doing the work is not functional but aesthetical. This  
doesn't make it any less valid. Yes, it's a lot of work and yes I'm not a  
fast worker. But it is clearly definable and could best be done in two  

1) Move to a more recent version of HTML (HTML 5 without the new tags),  
CSS 2.1 based layout and iFrames for containment and use ZPT instead of  
2) Replace frames with aysnchronous communication
