If I do that this is heading , and maintable overlap in firefox.but in ie they come below each other???
why? I would like it to overlap in ie as well.

If I SCROLL in firefox, the maintable overlaps with the other table as well when table 2 becomes at position 20 px on scroll.
In ie's case, on scroll the maintable disappears and doesnt stay fixed in position 20 px.


help?

I am using firefox 4 , and ie 7

Maybe it helps if you put them the other way around?

Change position from fixed to absolute.

S position:fixed.. style doesn't work in IE browser. do you know how to fix the object in ie browser.

Create a new web page with the code below.

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.maintable
{
[B]position:absolute;[/B]
top:20px;
}
body { height: 1000px; }
</style>
</head>

<body>
