I know that IE5 and 6 don't handle "position:fixed". What would be the work around in IE, therefore, to lock a container while the rest of the page scrolls. Thanks for the help. I imagine this issue has come up frequently but after a couple of searches here I decided to ask about it since nothing came up.

position:fixed in IE

This would be an option, but is quite a hassle:
