    After abandoning frames for CSS positioning, I find that if I need to change the menu, I have to go to every page and do the same change. Is there any way to avoid this?

    Use PHP Includes.

    That means that you have to either make all pages have a .php extension ...
    a good thing if they already do. If they don't, and you can't make the extensions
    .php, you can use .htaccess to process your .html and .htm files as PHP.

    You have one file (PHP script) called "menu.php".
    That one script is used, (included) on all of your pages.

    On every page, you have:
    <?php include("menu.php")?> where you want the menu to appear.

    Any change you make to "menu.php" will appear on all pages.
    You can also use PHP scripting within "menu.php" to alter the menu items
    and characteristics depending on which page is being viewed.

    Since you didn't post this in the PHP section, I'm not sure what your PHP experience is.

    I personally use Expression for coding - this creates a master file where I can put the stuff that doesn't change from page to page (masthead, navigation, footer etc) and every time I change the master file the changes ripple through to ALL pages - for large websites this is really useful.
