    A great layout, but 800x600 bugged. Need help :(

    Hello,

    Please take a look at this layout:
    http://www.replicaexpert.us/news/

    The idea of the design was to flip the content areas around, so that when CSS is disabled, the order that you will see things is as follows: 1) main page content, 2) left menu, 3) right menu, 4) top menu.

    This took a lot of bug fixing. However, there is one bug that I could not fix at all. Horizontal scrollbars. No matter what I tried, they simply did not appear in 800x600 screen sizes.

    What I mean is that when the screen gets too small to fit all columns nicely, instead of horizontally overflowing, it just continues shrinking and overlapping everything to a point where the layout is unusable.

    Please CSS gurus, I need your help! How can I fix this?

    Give the layout container a min-width (e.g. 800px).

    I agree with Tyssen, but the viewport is the stacking container for the AP main parts in this case.

    I suggest making the body start a new stacking so it becomes the container for the AP main parts, and set the min-width to body:

    Code:
    body{ position:relative; min-width:760px}
