    I had (what I thought was) a good idea on how to get something (in this case, a copyright footer, but I was thinking actually a navbar) to float at the bottom of the screen. No jerky JS needed.

    Alas, it works beautifully in Firefox, but fails miserably in Internet Explorer (as you might expect). Just thought I'd share, haha.

    (See the attached file)

    OK, I got this fixed in IE. ("Code for Firefox, hack for IE," as they say.)
    Feel free to use it :bandit:

    Interesting. What trick did you use? For me, the easiest way to do the little magic trick would be a [minicode]position: fixed[/minicode], but that certainly doesn't work in IE (though IE7 makes it work there).

    Actually MS choked on one thing that I didn't notice at first.... Then I tried to fix that, and it broke something else.. Then I realized margin on a child of a sibling was affecting an element... Then I wanted to shoot myself or the IE6 team.

    GOOD GOD IN HEAVEN DELIVER US FROM IE6

    This is why I stopped playing around with CSS.

    Haha, yeah I kind of forgot about IE7 from dean. Maybe I should just use that IE users can SUCK IT if they don't like downloading the few K that turns their browser into something manageable.

    buuut.... they have to have JS turned on. Then again, most do.

    Oh, and if you check out the file, I was just using position: absolute; top: and/or bottom:, and overflow:auto. Works great in Firefox.

    It really is a simple idea. And the fact that IE can't figure it out, even tho the necessary code is well under 1K, makes me angry.

    "Oh lord deliever us from IE" does have a better ring to it.
