Fixing a Table of Contents Menu, when contents Scroll

mcl
I wish to create a standard 3 column CSS page, but my centre contents
column is quite long. I have included Anchor Name Tags in the long
column and provided a navigation / Table of contents in the left
column.

Is it possible to have the Table of contents displayed, regardless of
the scroll position of the page.

I would like a similar requirement for the right column, which will
have other information.

This I hope will provide, access to all parts of the website, from any
current view of the page.

I hope I have explained this correctly and someone may be able to
point me to a solution.

Regards

Richard

It may not be so obvious how to make two columns stay put even after you
learn about fixed position. Perhaps this might promote an idea for you:

<http://netweaver.com.au/threeCols/fixed_both_sides.html>

Seems to work on all my Mac browsers (except IE)

(In knocking this one, I noticed a curiosity that my Opera ignores
min-width on body).

There is probably simpler. You should know that Windows IE 6 does not do
fixed and you will need some workarounds for which you better Google up.

You might find

helpful, I don't know in the case of three cols...
