    I'd like to direct your attention to this sample page: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/w0x726c2%28v=vs.100%29.aspx

    I have to build a Help section for a website app.  It will have about 20 - 30 pages in it.  I rather like the simplistic design that Microsoft has used for their aforementioned MSDN help.

    If I were building those MSDN pages, here's what I'm thinking I would do:
    1. Have a main master page for the header & footer.
    2. Have a secondary master page for the content on the left.  It would consist of a RadSplitter containing a RadSlidingPane, which itself contained a RadTreeView.
    3. Then the bulk of the space in the middle would contain a Web Content Form which referenced the secondary master page.

    Does this approach sound reasonable & logical to you or would you build it differently?

    Hi Robert,

    The approach you described sounds reasonable and is not far from what we did to build online documentation.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
