Sticky box problem

I know, I know, I should know how to fix this!

http://www.mandmkent.co.uk/beta/cips/

This is a little site we’re working on. I felt in the mood for a transparent box for the various society logos, fixed at the bottom of the browser window.

I drew an HTML layered box at the bottom of the page, set the bottom offset to 0px in the Inspector, and added a graphic background colour set to 20% black fill. So far, so good.

The problem is the box sticks at the bottom of the window if you resize the browser, but if you enlarge the type so a scrollbar appears, it then moves up the window with the scroll. I’ve missed something obvious, haven’t I?

You could change the position to Fixed in Window, and that will do
what you are looking for here.

You see? I told you it was obvious.

Thanks Walter.

Heather, what browser are you talking about — Internet Explorer? It
works just as I imagine you want it to work in Safari and Firefox.
That is, the box sticks to the bottom. If you enlarge the text,
scrollbars appear, as you’d expect, but the box still sticks to the
bottom when you scroll.

I tested in Camino 2.something, Firefox latest v2 and Safari 3 latest.
I didn’t bother with the PC in the corner at this stage.

I’ve since updated the uploaded version with the fixed in window
thing, so that’s possibly what you’re seeing now.
