Hi again.

Can you put me out of my misery and tell me how web designers can make their Nav Bars and / or layers float above the web page so it is always is in the same position on the page even if you scroll down the page the menu/layer/nav bar "floats" back to the same position on the page.

It looks like a really cool effect, is it difficult to do and understand??

Thanks.

At its simplest, this can be done by using fixed positioning in the CSS, but this doesn't work with IE6.

Maybe. Often javascript is used to do this so it will work with IE6.
