Sorry, maybe I'm dumb, I'm not sure if I get it...

For the directory tree, you mean something like:
|- index.html (should be displayed as html)
|- n.html (should be displayed as html)
|- dir1 (should be displayed via directory listing)
|- dir2 (should be displayed via directory listing)
sidebar should look like:
Index (should point to index.html)
n (should point to n.html)
dir1 (should point to dir1)
dir2 (should point to dir2)

Doing "ls" where? Inside the html?

Still unclear to me how I display html and directory listing at the same
tome on the "same page".

If possible, I would like to avoid frames.
