    Internet Explorer, position:fixed, and horizontal scrolling problem!


    Hi folks,

    I'm working on a website at the moment and having some issues 'fixing it' for Internet Explorer. The design scrolls horizontally, and using 'position:fixed;' on certain elements keeps them on the page while the rest scrolls - this works fine in Safari / Camino / Firefox etc. but as we know position:fixed; is broken in IE.

    I tried applying the fix found at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/bmerkey/e...ion-fixed.html but this only seems to work for regular vertical scrolling pages - when scrolled horizontally the "fixed" elements still scroll with the page.

    Is there any way possible to get this to work? I really really want to avoid any of those javascript "jumpy" scripts to reposition the element all the time. Thanks all.

    Why do you want horizontal scrolling? Many people find it annoying.

    Remember people spend most of their time on other people's sites (so don't violate web design conventions).

    Ah don't worry, it's not in the way you think - no scrollbars, and the menu moves it - but I don't think I'll be able to use it if I can't figure out how to keep some elements fixed on IE.. maybe I'll have to use a 'jumpy' script for now
