Sorry, viking funerals are for scandinavians only. Suck it.

As far as I understand, Fallout used a kind of modified scaling approach, where some areas didn't scale at all (here be Deathclaws), and others having their levels set when you entered them, so returning later would make the place a cake walk. Barely noticeable, it seemed to work pretty well, so I'd assume they'd use a similar system for Skyrim.
Oh, I actually found a source
to back that up. Information about the level scaling in Fallout 3 has been oddly sparse, though, so I still don't get precisely how it works. I guess since it works now, nobody cares.
