It may very well be the pc I'm right now, but in IE6, the text is really huge and the content area doesn't start on the right hand side until the menu finishes... I'll double check when I get home and post some snapshots if I still see the same problem. In Firefox, I'm seeing the text butting right up to the picture you have in the content area - you need a bit of padding between the text and the pic.
It appears ok on my machine but I will put a bit of space above and below the image but otherwise it seems okay. I am sure this must be everyone's nightmare but this page checks out in all the versions of IE that I have except IE 4 where is hugs the left side of the page.
Checking on my own pc, there is *no* problem with viewing the page in IE6 - so apologies for possibly alarming you :-)
Now I have no idea as to why the other pc using IE6 showed such large text... size is set to medium, so there must be something else in the settings on that machine.
That aside, I still believe you don't need to do that moving menu thing - if you don't want to use back to top anchor links, then maybe break up the page into smaller chunks and link to separate small pages.
Thanks for the confirmation that it appears ok on another machine.
I think I will forget about this idea as my partner has just voiced her opinion/order/dictate and said she didn't like it even if it worked the way I wanted it to. Sometimes she saves me from myself.
I wanted to use it on several of the index pages connected with the property pages but it will be much simpler just to open the space between a few of the listings and insert an anchor as you suggest with a link back to the top of the page. Simplicity is sometimes best in the end.
