Please Help: No-Scroll Menu Flush Beside Centered Table In CSS??

P: 4
Hi I have a question about a CSS menu.
I've got a 700 pixel table centered in the
body of my page. The table scrolls quite
a ways down.

I would like to place a menu flush against the
right side of that table, centered vertically, which
does not move when the user scrolls down.
Obviously, it would need to stay flush against
the centered table as it is resized in either
direction. Is there a way to do this using CSS?

The site is

Thanks so much for listening!

I'm a bit confused you want to add a vertical or horizontal menu to the side of the content and you do not want it to scroll with the page is that correct? Where abouts in the table do you want the menu to be placed?

Hi, Sorry for the confusion. Here's a pic of what I want to add (more or less):

-we're talking about the menu on the right stacked vertically

-it should be fixed in it's vertical position when the user scrolls vertically

-it should stay flush with the centered table when resized horizontally

Thanks for helping me clarify this question.

Is this an absurd or impossible request to make from CSS?
Is there any way to do it?

Waited a whole six hours, eh? You don't visit forums often, do you.

This would have been easy but you laid the page out with tables and I've never done that before. Also, your code is pretty antiquated and in 'quirks mode'. Perhaps you could add a div floated to the right of the table.

I would have given you sample code but there is too much to do here.

You could redo the top in CSS and this would be easier with absolute positioning.
