stationary DHTML layers to look like Frames - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Example: http://blog.html.it/layoutgala/LayoutGala24.html The layout would be something like this with a header, left column, content area, and footer. However, the client would like the header to remain stationary, as if it were a frame, while the rest of the page can scroll. I haven't heard of anything like this with CSS. Any ideas? We want to avoid frames because of search engine non-friendliness....

    This is a quick example using a stable technique that allows the "frames"
    look and feel for modern browsers (Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE7), but
    degrades gracefully to a normal layout for older browsers like IE5 and IE6:

    Thanks, Al. Would this type of layout be more search engine friendly than traditional frames? Is there a pack I could purchase to get this look and feel, but without the bottom "frame?"

    It's an ordinary CSS-based page so it has none of the limitations of real
    frames. We don't have a pack built around this yet, but you are free to use
    the code on that particular page.

    Is there any way to center all of these various DIV IDs on the page instead of having them left-aligned?

    It wouldn't look good without the page-spanning masthead and footer, but you
    could center the content within those 2 elements, to line up with the main
    content:
