What browser are you experiencing this under? Does it occur for other browsers or just a single one?

The whole page itself scrolls just fine for me under IE5.5. However...

div#left {
color: #FFFFFF;
position: fixed;
left: 0px;
top: 0px;
width: 170px;
height: 100%;
background-image: url(assets/sidebar_body.png);
background-repeat: repeat;
text-align: center;
}

Seems to be the culprit. Your use of 'position: fixed' is removing the vertical bars from scrolling. Perhaps you should try aligning the left menu inside a table rather than positioning through CSS.

That's not really the solution. All that really needs to be done is better use of the DIVs. Using fixed is just asking for trouble. You need to nest the divs and set relative spacing for everything to work the way you want.

ya you better listen to this. you can run into huge problems when using fixed/absolute. also if it looks good in one browser, that doesnt mean that it will look good in another..

Absolute has often worked fine for me... of course in the standards compliant browsers, like firefox, opera and safari, but even in IE.

fixed gets all mixed up though.

ya absolute usually works but i have ran into some situations where it did not
