I need a title that wil always be in the same place (the top) regardless of whether the user has scrolled don to the bottom of the page.

Can someone tell me how to do this?

You can use frames... and otherwise you need CSS.

--HTML--
<frameset rows="100, *">
<frame src="titlepage.html" />
<frame src="index.html" />
</frameset>

--CSS--
<head>
<style type="text/css">
div.content
{
  height: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}
div.title
{
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
}
body
{
  overflow-y: hidden;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="title"></div>
<div class="content"></div>
</body>

Good luck.

Mark,

Which parts go in the style sheet and which parts go in the HTML page?

My compiler didn't recognize: overflow-y: hidden;

"overflow-y" is not a known CSS property name.

div.content
{
  height: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}
div.title
{
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
}

goes into the css file and

<div class="title"></div>
<div class="content"></div>

in the html file.

Mark,

I put the word "Glossary" into both the title and the content.  And in both cases the text scrolls with the window.

I need it to stay put, even when I scroll the window.

Any suggestions?

I tried it, using IE6, it works in my opinion. Take a look:

<html>
<head>
<style>
div.content
{
  height: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}
div.title
{
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div class="title">Glossary (this one should stay on top)</div>
<div class="content">
Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Glossary<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Using external stylesheet:

==test.html==
<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="mystyle.css" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div class="title">Glossary (this one should stay on top)</div>
<div class="content">
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Glossary
<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
</div>
</body>
</html>

==mystyle.css==
div.content
{
  height: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}
div.title
{
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
}

Mark,

Yes it sure does work. I must have done something wrong when I integrated it.

Thanks.
