I've been having problems with the sidebar div on a blog layout on this site. It works fine on FF but displays incorrectly on IE7. Supposedly, IE7 has implemented the use of position:fixed in their CSS so I don't see what the problem is.

Anyone care to help me debug the problem?

Here's the base code (some blogspot tags are there, so please ignore) Highlighted are the divs that are not functioning properly.

Sorry for the crudeness and disorder of the coding. I'm very much an amateur at this kind of stuff.

hi
the fixed position is a very big draw back for the IE and the IE doen't understand it but in IE7 beta2 it is resolved here i am giving you a link for a complete solution of your problem use the information on this page and do your work fine with IE7

the link is:

http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/fixedPosition.html

-PC(INDIA)

The current code doesn't work on IE7 and I couldn't really care less fore IE6, so the problem isn't among the fixes up there.

The fact that it doesn't implement correctly on IE7, which supposedly supports fixed-positioning is puzzling.

I just need a check on the syntax for any problems as to why it's not displaying correctly D:

If it's not so much of a problem, it would be great if people could review the code cuz it's getting pretty hard and none of the fixes seem to be working for me.

<!DOCTYPE html> is the trick and it works.
Add it in the header of the page.
