Position:fixed and IE/Win

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Leif K-Brooks, Jul 9, 2003.

  1. As most of you know, IE/Win doesn't support position:fixed. My site's
    layout look ok with position:absolute, but look much better with
    position:fixed.
    I can live with position:absolute, but position:static looks absolutley
    awful. Is there any way to make IE use position:absolute, but other
    browsers use position:fixed without using really dirty hacks?

    Art posted this link here in the thread about Frames
    <http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/menus.html>. This solution uses
    child selectors, which is something IE6 cant handle either.
