Erm.. well, since this is in the standard_html_header, it is included at the
start of all DTML documents, unless you remove the
<!--#var standard_html_header--> that is put in by default when you create a
DTML document or method.

So, technically, no, it does not 'stay', but is generated for each page.  This,
however, is an advantage, since it allows the index at the top, and information
at the side, to be updated simply, instead of having to deal with complex
frames targets stuff.

Not a problem.  Also, I didn't document this entirely in my first post,
neglecting to mention a couple of things that would be aparent to experienced
Zopistas, but not to newbies.  In the side-bar, there is the option to include
extra text on a per-folder AND per-document basis.

This means that 'side_bar' will be rendered at this point, and if there is an
attributed of 'sub_bar', the object it names will also be rendered.
