position: fixed on IE6

Just for the record, here's a common workaround for IE's lack of support for position: fixed.

element { top: expression( document.body.scrollTop + 'px' ); }

Oh, and while I'm at it, here is a common workaround for just about every layout defect in Internet Explorer (especially those involving floats):

element { zoom: 1; }

Heck, here's another one to use if your text gets cut off because of incorrectly inherited line-heights in IE:

element { line-height: normal; }

We could go on like this all night really.
