I have seen boxes of text on a web page which always stay visible as the user scrolls down the page. I believe they are coded in DHTML. I just finished searching google for 20 minutes and I have not been able to see an example script. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Usually they stay there with the css position:fixed.  However, ie6 doesn't support this, so you have to use position:absolute, and reposition it in the window.onscroll event.
