Like on http://www.popsci.com/, when you click on the menu icons, they stay there while the page loads. How is this done? Thanks.

eh? what? what menu icons?... the whole page reloads... (the top banner part reloads so quick you hardly notice it)

Hehe, not on my internet connection. :)

I suppose you could do it with iframes, but I'm sure these guys here have a better way of doing it than that.

Oh okay, and how might this be done?

Well in your iframe tag, specify a name for it. Something like this:

<iframe name="content"></iframe>

And then to have a new page load in there you will want to include the target in your anchor tag outside of the iframe. Something like:

<a target="content"></a>

The page won't reload, just load the new content into the iframe. I hope that helps, I'm not running on all cylinders today. If that isn't making any sense let me know and I'll come up with an example for you. Take care!
