Hi, using a old version of latex I managed to do something similar.
I use tables rather then frames, as many textbrowsers (and robots) are not
good for browsing frames. It works with l2h 
This is LaTeX2HTML Version 99.1 release (March 30, 1999):
(I never managed to make this work with a newer version of l2h)


sub top_navigation_panel {
        '<TABLE BORDER="0" WIDTH=640  CELLSPACING="2" CELLPADDING="10">' .
                "<TR>" .
                '<TD ALIGN="LEFT" VALIGN="TOP">' .
                '<IMG SRC="images/freedict.gif" WIDTH=200 HEIGHT=100><BR>' .
                
#       'Horst Welcomes you'.
                 'You are visitor <img src="http://www.freedict.de/cgi-bin/count
                '</TD><TD WIDTH=475  ROWSPAN=3>' .
        ""
}


sub bot_navigation_panel {

        "</TD></TR>".
        '<TR><TD ALIGN=left VALIGN=TOP BGCOLOR="FFCC66">' .
 '<H2><A HREF="http://www.freedict.de/index.html">Home-Linux</A></H2><BR><HR>' .

 '<H2><A HREF="http://www.freedict.de/wbuch/index.html">Home-Windows</A></H2><BR
        &do_cmd_tableofcontents() .

        '<H2><A HREF="http://www.freedict.de/wbuch/Download.html">Downloads</A><
        '<H2><A HREF="http://freedict.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/Dict.cgi">On-Line 

        '<BR><BR>'.
        '</TD></TR><TR><TD VALIGN=BOTTOM>' .
        '<ADDRESS>Zuletzt ge&auml;ndert: <!--#echo var="LAST_MODIFIED"--> von <a
        '<BR>'.

        '</TD></TR>'.
        '</TABLE>'.
        '<HR>'
}
