    It's a frameset. It's pretty basic stuff. Check out http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_frames.asp

    The ideal solution, if IE supported it, would be to use the css position:fixed; bottom:0px; properties. That way you could bypass frames all together.

    The position:fixed property is supposed to align elements according to the browser window, so a bottom:0px rule should cause an element to attatch to the bottom of the browser.. and it works in most modern browsers. But apparently nobody sent MS that memo.

    Well, if you look at that site, it uses frames. And you can get it to work in IE, with a little trickery.

    Yes I understand that site uses frames. I was not arguing that point, or if IE supported frames. Clearly IE does supports them, and it has for quite a while.

    My point is there is theoretically other ways you could achieve the same effect without the use of frames. It ment it more for informational pourposes then practical advice.

    Also for informational pourposes.. The reason why frames are generally undesireable is because it requires the orcestration of multiple files to create a single page and because of that there could be certin rendering issues as well as search engine problems. However they are currently the most practical way to achieve theis effect.

    I wasn't arguing for frames. I was just saying you can force IE to allow fixed CSS positions, even on non-background elements.

    The only method I have found that gets IE to 'work' with fixed positioning causes the element to shake up and down rapidly as the element has to consently refreash itself to its position while scrolling.
