Keen newbie stumped: why does scroll lock on IE6?
Very new to all this: I have a question - you are the experts.
Our website is at www.nobullyforme.ca We have an official launch in a week, and this is a BAD bug!
I've just learnt css in two weeks and am very pleased, except.....
On all my browsers the left menu bar stays in place and the header stays in place but the text scrolls.... perfect! Idea borrowed from 'my ugly example site'
But on IE6 (only the browser used by 95% of the world) it locks in place and worse still the text is below the bottom of the page....arrrrggghhh.
You can view the css at /stylesheet.css at the above address.
I know it is a known bug but all my searches have come up with old IE5 information and nothing relevant.
If you have a moment to investigate, I'd be very grateful.
Take care and thanks in anticipation,

have you tried using tables?

Thank you so much for the speedy reply and sorry I didn't back sooner.
Yes that table fix sort of works.
It does include some odd letters with hats.
But the text is visible in IE6 all the way the top of the page.
So two questions if I may: how do I fix the letters with hats and all.
Secondly, the feature I worked so hard to achieve was to have the header and the linkbar remain stationary while the body text would scroll up and down independantly.
I got that idea from
but when I view them on IE6 the fixed header and link bar don't stay still anymore.
Can you suggest a site to examine (even one) which proves you can have this idependent scroll feature in IE6?
