Ah great - thanks Mark! I ignored the obvious as I thought position was just about relative positioning within nested containers, but you seeded my Google search perfectly http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/menus

I'm not sure if this means the div is following the scroll or ignoring it but the desired behaviour wrt scrolling is like the 'Free Trial' and 'What's New' images on www.runrev.com
