Fixed Positioning in IE 6

* { margin:0; padding:0; }
html, body {
   height: 100%;
}
body #fixedElement {
   position:fixed !important;
   position: absolute; /*ie6 and above*/
   top: 0;
   right: 0;
}
#page-wrap {
    width: 600px;
    margin: 0 auto; 
    font: 16px/2 Georgia, Serif;
}

The 100% height on the body and html stuff is in case you want to do fixed positioning along the bottom edge of the browser window.

    or you do it over expressions.. like this:

    * html #element{
    		position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px;
    		left: expression( ( 0 + ( ignoreMe2 = document.documentElement.scrollLeft ? document.documentElement.scrollLeft : document.body.scrollLeft ) ) + 'px' );
    		top: expression( ( 0 + ( ignoreMe = document.documentElement.scrollTop ? document.documentElement.scrollTop : document.body.scrollTop ) ) + 'px' );		
    }

    this is for position fixet on TOP

    This tutorial saved my life. I didn’t think this was possible in IE6. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  4. Sorry. Not working in IE6

  5. Not working for me too

  6. It seems not working. Also, Is there any way to achieve the position:fixed effect for a div which have to be kept some distance from bottom , and not from top.

    Even, a jQuery solution will do. Thanks in advance.

  7. As FJ mentioned (10/25/2009) it is possible to do it with CSS expression, but with some extra hack to get a smooth scrolling:

    You can use _position:absolute; along with position:fixed so that only ie will process that absolute part and rest of the browsers won’t even read it.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
