My main question would be how many non-main-section-of-text pages there 
would be. I would think most of it would be content, or images, both of 
which flow nicely I think. But I'll think about some more mockups :-)

I didn't mean on a regular window (although I personnally never have my 
browser windows maximized, even on 1024x768), but what happened if the main 
section of text was too long to fit. I personally would prefer for the menu 
to stay put in those cases.

Nowadays I prefer to use empty id'd or class'd divs, instead of tables.
