Clearly a browser issue, though you do not say which browser you are using.

For authoring matters, please use Usenet or one of the many web design
mailing lists. Questions specifically about CSS usage are suited to

You will want 'px' units on those co-ordinates.

For best compatibility with HTML, use:

  <img src="img.jpg"" />

(you will also need an 'alt' attribute for it to be valid.)

I'm guessing you are using IE5/Mac. There is a known bug where hover
effects don't work in scrolled fixed-position element, I guess this is
the same thing. Other browsers (Mozilla, Opera, IE/Win when fixed with ) do not exhibit this
behaviour. Still, it is worth avoiding DHTML elements that rely on
hover effects in fixed-position elements at this time.
