Is it possible to keep a site header (logo/navigation) in a "frame" on top of any page that is linked to?
For example: Person X clicks on an affiliate link on my website. I would like to display my website header on top in their browser as this person navigates the affiliated website? The effect of this would be somewhat like a co-brand.
This seems quite possible, but I have never seen it done. Why?
It's certainly possible and some people probably do it. Make sure you closely read the TOS of the affiliate programs before doing this- many may have strict guidelines for how you can link to their sites and may specifically forbid this.
Yeah- instead of linking directly to the site you link to a framed page on your site. The top frame has your header page and the bottom frame has the affiliate site. If you're asking for HTML help, the HTML forum is the place to go.
When you frame an affiliate progaram site, that affiliate program site will be considered as 3rd party site to web-browsers ( IE, FireFox ...). And since IE 7 and lots of personal firewalls out there doesn't accept cookies from 3rd site, that will prevent the affiliate program from tracking sales/leads properly.
You will lost alot of sales because of this fault :)

Every merchant that I have a relationship with strictly forbids the framing you are trying to do. One affiliate manager told me that this violation is considered by some to be the number one no-no. Even worse than bidding on restricted keywords.
