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.
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?
However here's a link [devnull.tagsoup.com] to a page which explains the workaround fully..
(It should work because I had a test page running for someone else, not here though, I'll go back and check what the foibles were....if any!)
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.
things get messy when you try to cover 100% of the body width, because internet explorer's scrollbar will be overlapped; you'll need to wrap that element with 16px margin-right in the fixed element...
Looks like I really need to get into css. An investment in Topstyle and some non-stop css reference and tutorial browsing is in order.
