    How to keep a layer "floating". Similar to the CSS property "static".

    I tried Googling this because I know scripts exist for this but I am having issues using the right terminology to find them. Must be a bad brain day.

    I'm just trying to keep a layer (a table with items ordered by a user) floating to the right of the form as they scroll down to complete it (my client insists upon it).

    You can use CSS fixed positioning to achieve this (although I think fallback methods are needed for older browsers) or a JS floating object like this (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/staticmenu.htm)

    That one worked well for my purposes. Now I fi can just get IE to center it....

    I wanted to use the CSS static property but I'm fairly certain the users of this application will be using IE and possibly IE 6 so I was forced to find an alternative method.
