Fixed positioning problem with IE6

Hi,

I would really love to get some help from you since I am starting to
become completely desperate with something quite simple...

I am trying to transfer a fixed-positioning-implementation for IE from a
tutorial page (http://limpid.nl/lab/css/fixed/header-and-left-sidebar)
to my site: http://www.refugio-thueringen.de/dev/dev.html. Everything
works fine with FF and also it works with IE but only on the tutorial
site not in my implementation even though I actually adapted it 1:1...
Can't find the error :(

Thanks a lot for any help!

Best wishes,
Axel

The original kicks IE into quirks mode, your code doesn't. Add the
comment that precedes the doctype to see if that helps.

Btw, the original causes a nasty horizontal scrollbar in Opera.

Yes, thats because the top right container with the orange background
needs to extend to the right window border. And because the two
container to the left of it are fixed size I do not know what to do with
the right one to have it end exactly at the window border so that no
horiz. scrolling bars are necessary. I just set it to width 100%.
It the same in IE, but FF does it how I would want it. I interprets the
100% in this way that it extends to the full window width but not further.

Can you maybe help me with this, too?

Thank you!

Axel

The original seems a rather poor construct overall, it also breaks
keyboard scrolling in IE, I wouldn't bother trying to fix the flaws.
