Ok, I hadn;t looked into what kind of CSS IE7 currently supports (using it 
myself only since last week...) Are there browser stats available for 
mythtv.org? Wouldn't be surprised if they are different from average :-)

Given that more advanced CSS is expected for the menu anyhow, a fixed 
position for a left-nav menu should be doable, with a scripted CSS 
attribute for older IEs.

Mine has left and top, even more easy ;-) <minor pet-peeve>Surrounding an 
URL with <> makes it easier to click on the link, one of things I don't 
like about Thunderbird is why it can't  surround pasted URLs with them, as 
Mulberry does</minor pet-peeve>
