    I'm pretty stumped about this "feature"

    I was at www.glassdog.com and I was really amazed that the menu at the left that follows the user as they scroll wasn't FLASH. How do you accomplish that without Flash?

    Is it JavaScript?

    That's what you'd call a floating div. Notice how it doesn't work under netscape and mozilla, only under ie.

    Yes, it is javascript in essence the menu is sitting on a layer and as one scrolls it readjusts its position.

    Here are a few navigation scripts that you might like to try out to create a "Floating Menu"

    Download the next two codes {among many, many other types of scripts} under the script category "Navigation" @ http://www.24fun.com/

    * Sticky Menu Bar
    Description: Whether you scroll up or down, this Menu Bar follows the user.
    Browser: Navigator 4.x and Explorer 4.x
    http://www.24fun.com/

    * yx-Menu2
    Description: Build pulldown menus, menu bars, pop-up menus and floating menus with just ONE core script.
    Browser: Navigator 4.x and Explorer 4.x
    http://www.24fun.com/

    AND.....

    * Floating Menu
    http://javascript.internet.com/navig...ting-menu.html
    Description: JavaScript can power a floating menu, that actually can 'float' a navigation bar menu to anywhere on the page, with the click of a mouse.

    * Portable Menu
    http://javascript.internet.com/navig...able-menu.html
    Description: As the visitor scrolls up and down your site, the menu moves up and down with them. It's a portable menu.

    ENJOY.....WebKat

    Wow! Thanks WebKat. You gave me so many things to look at and try out.

    I just checked 'em out and two are exactly what I was looking for!

    Just a question here, no big deal, how does GLASSDOG get theirs to go up and down "smoothly"?

    BTW, I like your new avatar.

    hmm, i'm testing it with ns 4.7 and it works the same as in ie 5... one thing that is different is that the whole page is left aligned in ns and centered in ie.
