i'm rebuilding my old site http://www.cw.sk that i created few years ago and that was frame based. I wanted to keep some behaviour that i take as my own and are characteristic for my site (top and bottom menu). I have found this nice CSS layout on some sites as experiment, changed it a bit and used.
The only browser i have found problematic is old IE 5.2 for Mac, but there's too less users using it - most of Mac users use Safari or Firefox, so i don't find it as a problem. Personaly, I'm Mac user and therefore i have problem to test all Win browsers
When i remove XML Prolog, the layout damages under Win IE 6 - and that's bad. That's why the XML Prolog is in the code. Can anybody help me with this?
And how do you like this solution?
Thanks for any help, interesting opinions a tips.

Great graphics! Smile
The couple of points I'd make is that I think it would lift your site if you had rollovers on your links (ie change of colour or something).
Also, you get a little scrollbar on your top nav bar in both FF & IE (PC).
As for the XML prologue thing, haven't looked closely (cos I'm about to head home) but if removing the prologue breaks your site in IE it would suggest that you haven't quite got your code right because it means that IE is in displaying in quirks mode, rather than standards mode.

Hi

Tyssen's right, the xml thing has to go as it forces IE into quirks mode. Can you remove it and re-post when done, so we can see the effect (ie what does IE get wrong in standards mode?)

Your problem is that IE doesn't support position:fixed for any element other than the body.
Tagsoup has an article about a workaround for IE.
