Material that does no scroll in web page

P: n/a
I'm writing a web page using Nvu. I have the page such that the
content is centered, with a column of links and media on the left hand
side. I want that column on the left to stay fixed, not scroll as the
user reads text on the right hand side.

How can this be done?

Never heard of it, sorry.

You can do that with frames (very bad!) or using the "position" property
in CSS, for example:

#some-element
{
position:fixed;
left:0;
top:0;
}

Personally, I think it's extremely irritating for web page elements not
to scroll, and I recommend you do not design your page like this.

Hello,

Nvu 1.0 is now 2.5 years old. You can use instead
KompoZer 0.7.10
http://www.kompozer.net/
which is an unofficial bug fixed of Nvu 1.0

It is clearly improved, better than Nvu 1.0. For instance, it does not
create
valign="undefined"
in its HTML code as Nvu did.
The nice thing is that Charles Cooke who was the author of the
official Nvu User Guide is now also the official KompoZer User Guide.

How can this be done?
position: fixed;

how can I get it to work with IE
With IE 7,
position: fixed
will work. It will not work for IE 6 and it is not my recommendation
to try to make it work with IE 6. When Charles Cooke designed his Nvu
User Guide, we had this discussion and we decided to leave things as
they are. Same thing with the W3C with few of their webpages: they
chose and coded
position: fixed
knowing well that IE6 would not support it. Please understand that CSS
2.x specification is now 10 years old: it is up to users to upgrade
their browser.

The world stats on browser usage also show that IE 7 is now more
frequently used in several countries.
