I'd like to have the green top line on <snip> stay there even if I scroll down on the page. Basically, I'd like to have it act like another frame. Is there some simple way to do that? As I said, I'm completely new to this. I created my first css file a couple hours ago and that was mainly cut-and-paste...

Even Opera doesn't support overflow control at an acceptable level!
Gecko browsers do. They are the only ones to completely support position:fixed/absloute and complete overflow control.
Still, it's not hard to emulate frames cross-browsers. Complex, maybe... but not hard ;)
All round support for position:fixed or overflow would make life so much easier wouldn't it?
Or even just a consistent way to address CSS hiding would be nice - at least then we could work around their bugs and missing features without getting our hands dirty.
One thing though... I'd have to second being a purist/idealist. Might sound strange, considering the fact that I promote various methods of hiding CSS from browsers.
However, I only promote such methods if the code produced will validate as 100% correct syntax. That might sound like a lame excuse, but considering the HTML soup we were in a couple of years ago, with various tricks for different browsers - at least the code can now be made to validate.
Sure, certain browsers might have issues interpreting, but at least they have a chance of receiving stuff that their limited vocabulary can handle.
I wish we lived in a world where Microsoft, Mozilla, and Opera worked together. Unfortunately they don't. The only good thing is that they somehow seem to agree more now than they did a few years ago...

and so on.... and so on... then at least we could code hide without resorting to 'tricks'. ;)
