i have a div that seems to be moving outside the browser screen. i think because it is position fixed it is not taking into account the scrollbar. Any ideas how to fix?

the word acs logo is being cut off

site looks best in firefox, i will account for ie problems later

I set the body width to 99%. That seemed to resolve the issue in ie6.
body  {
	width: 99%;
	font: 100% "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	margin: 0; /* it's good practice to zero the margin and padding of the body element to account for differing browser defaults */
	padding: 0;
	text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
	color: #000000;
}
