    Three methods are available but you will have to abandon the iFrame unless you put it in a div according to the coding below. Anything fixed will mean other content will scroll behind it and be hidden.

    Coding most of the page as position: relative with floats but the centre part as position: absolute and stated px for left and top will usually make it stay in one place while the rest scrolls.

    Position: fixed is the best solution but IE6 does not support this. IE7 and Firefox do.

    See also (scroll and watch the left image) (image overlay which stays in fixed position - works in Firefox but I can't see the effect in IE).
