Tutorial 24: Fixing Frames with Fixed Positioning - HTML with Style | 10
HTML Frames have been used so far on the Web to provide sections of a Web page that scroll independantly of each other, but they cause a lot of hassle, making linking difficult and breaking the consistency of our documents. CSS fixed positioning helps us work around this by positioning parts of one document relative to the viewport. The overflow property can be used to control their scrolling appropriately. By being careful about how you position these elements, you can have your layout fall back to the default rendering on Navigator 4 and Internet Explorer, making this technique useable in a production environment.
