Fixed Positioning

Definition from GRC 275 Assignment 6 Handout:

An element with position: fixed is positioned at the specified coordinates relative to the browser window. The element's position is specified with the "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties. The element remains at that position regardless of scrolling. Works in IE7 (strict mode).

Note: IE7 and IE8 supports the fixed value only if a !DOCTYPE is specified.
