My page is looking pretty good in Firefox and IE 6.0:

Unfortunately the non-fixed scrolling div (ie, the content) is completely invisible in Netscape 7.1. I based my example off of the Holy Grill example by Stuart Nicholls and his example works in Netscape 7.1, so obviously something I did confused it. Unfortunately I don't know all the browser idiosynchracies yet. Sad

Entire div not visible in Netscape 7.1

Hi

Netscape 7 was a bit buggy. I seem to remember it had problems with z-indexing layers. Your page works Ok in latest versions of Gecko engined browsers.

Y'know, that z-indexing might be a left-over bit from the holy grill example that I don't need. Lemme go play with that...thanks for the idea! :-k

Entire div not visible in Netscape 7.1

I have just revised the 'The Grill' because of a problem with the content not recognising the top margin setting.

I have reset the top margin to zero and introduced a 'padding' div 200px high which sits at the top of the content div and forces the text down.

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE

Hmmm, guess I can't ditch the z-axis after all. From talking to people it sounds like Netscape 7.1 is close to being a dead browser anyways, so I won't hold myself up for it.
