This trick disables scrolling with the mousewheel held down on the computer, and I can't scroll at all on any of my mobile browsers (Windows/iPhone/Android). That's kind of jarring.

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I spent yesterday trying to get this to work. My code via your idea

<style type="text/css">
html, body {margin:0; padding:0; width:100%; height:100%; overflow:hidden; text-align:left;}
body {font-family:timesnewroman, papyrus;}
#bkgrnd {position:fixed; top:0; left:0; width:100%; height:100%; z-index:1;}
#content { position:absolute; z-index:2;}


<img src="images/fadedbkgrd.jpg" alt="background image" id="bkgrnd">

<div id="content">

My background still ends up on top. This is frustrating. I feel that I must be missing something obvious.

Hey Stu,

Me again. One of your commentors said it doesn't work on IE/Vista, there in lies my problem. Hubby has IE/XP, doesn't work there either. Works fine with Firefox/XP. Bummer, it looks really good when it works. I liked the simplicy of the code. I will have to do something else.

I've followed this as close as possible, but I can't get anything in front of the background??

Any idea what I am missing? I'm thinking it is tied into the z index?

Implement a footer into this design, is that possible ?

This is some great CSS, thank you!

I would like to resolve a problem I have with using version 1 (for all browsers) in IE (8) - I can only scroll down (or up) the page when the mouse is hovering over my content area, which is 950px wide.

I'd like to be able to scroll with the mouse on any area of the screen - rather than having to click and drag on the scrollbar on the side of the screen).

I've tried playing around with some different div attributes and widths etc but can't seem to get it to work. Does anyone else have this problem or a solution for it?
