draggable/resizable 2 column layout?

I'm looking for advice on how to construct a web-page that will have the following behavior

aside from a header and a footer, the content portion of the page will be split into 2 columns
the left column will contain ~30 rows (1 hyperlink per row).
you click on a hyperlink and it makes an ajax call (trendy, I know...) and uses the results of the call to populate the right column.

this is pretty straightforward, but I'd like to be able to **click/drag** on the border between the 2 columns and resize them so that I can see more of the right-hand column when I want to (this would ultimately hide some of the contents of the left-hand column).

Is there a common/simple/straightforward/commonly accepted way of doing this?

You may be able to pull this off with HTML frames.  Is this what your looking for?
