((I wonder why this feature never caught on.... it would have been
extremely useful and aided in a lot of things... could have been used
instead of frames for non-scrolling navigation bar....oh well...))

Using LINK to include a Document Banner

The LINK element can be used with REL=Banner to reference another
document to be used as banner for this document. This is typically used
for corporate logos, navigation aids, and other information which
shouldn't be scrolled with the rest of the document. For example:

     <LINK REL=Banner HREF=banner.html>

The use of a LINK element in this way, allows a banner to be shared
between several documents, with the benefit of being able to separately
cache the banner. Rather than using a linked banner, you can also
include the banner in the document itself, using the BANNER element.
((which must have gone out after HTML3))
