    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,

    <h2>NewsFlash! Dr Gary Namie is speaking in Vancouver at the end of May.
    Dr. Gary Namie of Bullybusters.org and the Workplace Bullying and Trauma Institute is speaking in Vancouver on Thursday 27th May.
    His appearance is being organized by the Family Services of Greater Vancouver Employee Assistance Division.
    Registration has to be completed by this Wednesday, May 19th.
    It is a lunchtime workshop, from 11.30 to 1.30 and the cost is $35.
    It's being held at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown, 6083 McKay, Burnaby.
    Registration is at 604.261.8435 or 604.732.6933 (Visa and Mastercard accepted).
    I (this is Stephen typing) can't be there (grrrr) but Karen does hope to attend and would be delighted to see any others of us too.
    Although it is advertised as being for 'Executive Managers, Managers/Supervisors, Safety Coordinators and Human Resource Professionals' a few real people couldn't hurt....
    We contacted Gary Namie about the event, and he was kind enough to respond. He explained that he does separate and very different presentations for targets. We're sure it would still be useful to get his perspective of what education and enlightenment the managers etc. mentioned above need most. Or if you are in a situation where there are some sympathetic, well intentioned, managers who would like to learn more, pass the details on to them.
    If you'd like to let us know if you will be there we can meet up, otherwise simply enjoy the event. For those who can't attend we will put a full report on this site later. </p><p>Stephen

    krak d,

    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?

    Thanks again,

    Stephen (expat Brit in Canada)
