How to create a "stationary button" ?

Posted on 2002-07-17

I have seen a few pages where as you scroll down, a button "follows" you down the pages as if it floats along with the scroll.
The button needs to have the same functionality as if the user had pressed the "back" button.
Code Please?
Java if necessary.

position:fixed is Netscrap 6 and opera only.

For cross-browser you have to script it.  I don't know why anyone would take the time to script it it for a low point question when the history of the questioner shows only 4 A grades in the last 10.
