Ah! Great! I'll try that. Thanks!

Unfortunately I can think of no way of imitating this in my
surrogate solution for browsers that don't understand fixed 
positioning but do understand JavaScript. This uses JavaScript
code that constantly moves the div into view. It works quite well, 
but providing scrollbars would be a major pain.
