Another small change to the site: I’ve now got the top and bottom black bars in a fixed position setting, so that the content scrolls between them. I’ve also redone the top bar so that people can see where they are on the site.

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but could never find a reliable enough way to make sure the content scrolling beneath had exactly the right margins top and bottom. Then finally I hit on a hack: have exactly the same content appear on the bottom layer as well.

The only remaining problem is that the system doesn’t work in IE6, which won’t read the “position: fixed” element in CSS. So what I’ve done there is just eliminate one of the duplicates. Meanwhile this has reaffirmed my determination to put an IE6 only message telling people to get a better browser on the main page.
