Brad Neuberg's comments

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but what about IE not supporting the CSS position: fixed attribute? This makes it a pain in the butt to do toolbars that you want to stay stuck, such as having an editor toolbar at the top of the page that stays present even as you scroll the document you are editing. Not having this makes you need to use craptastic JavaScript on IE that tries to keep the toolbar in place as you scroll, which means it 'jumps' around as you scroll trying to keep in place.
