    They're using frames. I don't recommend them. The body of the page is contained in another html file, referenced in the source code.

    As the person above says about using frames, the reason these are not recommended is because A) they can hurt load time B) search engines do not like frames, because they are not able to index them correctly.

    And C) they cause usability problems (e.g., printing).

    And accessibility problems EG: speech browsers which cannot see the inner content properly.

    You forgot bookmarking too! And link sharing.

    Yes! I knew there were two things I meant to bring up, but once I started typing I could only remember one. It's not easy, going senile.

    Wouldn't bookmarking fall under accessibility too, though?

    I would say usability as well as accessibility. Being able to bookmark pages is more of a tool to help improve your experience and help you keep track of pages you have visited (which by definition is usability as it reduces the click through’s to reach the same website again). But interestingly it could be seen as an accessibility recommendation for people with cognitive memory problems (this is where we glance at “senile” Tommy ) as bookmarks work as memory aids for people with diseases such as Alzheimer’s who may not be able to keep hold of addresses, which is something many people overlook in accessibility recommendations.

    A site or web page isn't inaccessible even if it's difficult to bookmark. Not even if it doesn't appear in any SERPs. You can still access it by typing in the URI.

    But it's definitely poor usability.

    Tommy, I think you missed the point I was making. Accessibility takes into account the needs of people with disabilities which may be inhibited by their ability to browse the web. And for people with cognitive disorders who may not be able to remember the URL to type, or remember where exactly they found the URL (if it is no longer in their browser history), if they cannot bookmark the website, people with Alzheimer’s may find it impossible to relocate the website again.

    I find it's very easy. I'm heading that way fast without any difficulty at all.
