Would it be possable to use a < div > tag and have the contents within it remain fixed as the page is scrolled? This effect would be similar to using a frame to house a menu, which is exactly what I want to do but with the < div > tag.
I've just got into css and am wondering whether it can manipulate the contents of the < div > tag to create this effect I'm after.
Had another go and got this working in opera and netscape, however even though I have used the separate css for the IE hiccup (linked to with the if conditional comment) the same result does not occur in IE.
Nick have you any idea how to do this in IE (re: aforemention & link) anyone else know how to emulate a frame effect with css in IE?
I put in a lot of time on this last fall. The W3C recs allow for it, but there's still not enough browser support to put it into practice, from what I can see. Maybe when IE7 is released and gains enough market share.
Looks like this is where ranjan got the inspiration when posting [webmasterworld.com ]. The quote below from the site cleared things up for me. I was using a 100% table that overlaped IE's scrollbar thus the mess I was getting in with IE.
