Has anyone attempted to write a web gateway based on frames?  I've been
thinking of doing this for a while, but I have too many projects and don't
know enough about HTTP servers to do it yet.  The way I was thinking, any
page sent out by the MOO could look something like:

           |    MOO's name in big letters     |
           |     |      Room       |   Room   |
 Inventory--->   |   Description   | Contents |
           |     |                 |          |
           |  Menu bar and navagation icons   |

and then each frame would only change when it has to.  Anyone see any
problems with this (besides that not every browser supports frames) ?
