how does's layout works?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

first of all, i hope not to be offtopic: since there is both html and
css and tables, then i'm posting it on two newsgroups --without
crossposting this--, ciwas and ciwah.

the layout of is exactly the layout i'd like to
obtain: there are no frames --then it's indexable by spiders--, but
you have a fixed and invariable "frame" all around a main area which
scrolls its content. i have read several times the source html for
that page --and downloaded all the css's and js's--, but wasn't able
to understand how it works.

can you please help me understanding how to reproduce it?
it seems to me a table which occupies 100% of work area, has some
fixed size cells and in the "main" cell it contains a div which
scrolls its content. but i'm able to go no further than this and can't
understand how to go on.

i'd appreciate any help.

thanks in advance,
