Fixed footer for IE6!

  • # August 23, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    For anyone who’s interested, I wrote up a tutorial for creating a fixed footer that works in IE6 and earlier, plus all the other major browsers. Check it out and give me your feedback!

    The only problem with your solution is that the expression statement can cause major memory problems.

    The problem with expressions is that they are evaluated more frequently than most people expect. Not only are they evaluated when the page is rendered and resized, but also when the page is scrolled and even when the user moves the mouse over the page. Adding a counter to the CSS expression allows us to keep track of when and how often a CSS expression is evaluated. Moving the mouse around the page can easily generate more than 10,000 evaluations.

    Hmm…I wasn’t aware of that, but I tested it across IE6 and IE7 and didn’t notice any performance problems…
