My title probably wasn't the greatest, but here is my question. I have a page that has a horizontally scrolling list of images. It uses mootools' fx.scroll function to slide the images left/right. Underneath the images I have a div of content that includes a couple of links, copyright, etc..

I currently have this div fixed so that it stays on the page as all other content is slid off to the left/right. This causes problems, however, if someone is using a smaller resolution as the content in this div can be cut off with no way of seeing it. Is there a way that I can fix the content only horizontally while still allowing it to move up and down?

I would try to design the page to the minimum browser window size expected to be used and go from there.

Most people do not like to have to scroll horizontally and there are so many better tools than mootools to have images scroll left/right. Properly done, you would have to use the extra coding to fix content to scroll function.
