Re: No Login with IE6

Ahhh…that makes sense. I can understand now what your aim is. I can also understand your reasons for wanting to use absolute positioning. I looked again at the page based on these details. You indeed have a unique situation, but overall I don’t think it’s too complex. This is what I love about CSS layout vs a table based layout. We have so much fine grained control and many choices in this type of situation.

I can think of a few ways to accomplish your layout without using as much (or any) absolute positioning. Do you know much about background images? I would look there. You could also make a single background image with just the book images as background images on the list items on the left hand links. These are just a few ideas I’ve got. Either way, there’s a good solution out there that can work cross-browser/cross-platform. I admire and encourage your efforts to keep working at it. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if you run into a wall. Just drop me a line on my contact form at

Good luck!
