Or another way...

Instead of trying to replicate things, brainstorm with some of the 
cooler things that divs can do.  My latest interest is in fixed headers 
and footers that never scroll off the browser edges, like your own 
bookmark bar.  Check out the code and demos here (but I would never want 
  such big headers and footers; they need to be as thin as possible to 
hold a single row of buttons.  You populate those with pages in the site 
group and allow the CSS styling to be driven from a group (in a separate 
skin library), with samples to start...
