[Solved] CSS Position fixed in IE6

When it comes to Internet Explorer most times we use the css property position:fixed. This works fine most times but does not work in IE6. I have often faced this issues as a developer and finally I figured a way out based on some of my experience with web-designing.

I use the steps below to solve the CSS position:fixed issue

  • Create a IE6.css file
  • Include this css file in head
  • Write the following line of code and it will work. 😉
#body-background {
/**/position: absolute;
top: expression((0 + (ignoreMe = document.documentElement.scrollTop ? document.documentElement.scrollTop : document.body.scrollTop)) + 'px');
right: expression((20 + (ignoreMe2 = document.documentElement.scrollLeft ? document.documentElement.scrollLeft : document.body.scrollLeft)) + 'px');
/**/ }

I find this a very practical solution. Do you know of any better ones? Do share them through your comments.
