I'm starting a asp.net 3.5 project and I'm using a master page and content pages. Is there a way either with ajax or some other controls to not refresh the master page portion just the content portion? I don't want the user to see the screen blinking.
Most of the pages will have static links to other pages and documents.
Is this possible?

Try use the UpdatePanel control.

Don't try this. First, it requires you to load other content into the main body area dynamically. It also means you don't change the URL ever. Don't try to use techniques that are not standard, there are reasons most companies don't bother with this and
your users aren't going to notice your site blinking between pages if every other site they visit does.
What you can do is optimize load times, simplify the CSS and HTML so it renders very quickly. This will minimize the impact of the transition from page to page as optimization allows certain elements to load quicker.
