Apparently windows ie extends the content width beyond the browser
window and unreachable in certain cases such as with tables, maybe
block content too. Microsoft says absolute does not have a margin and
must use page position, although it doesn't look like everyone agrees.
I used margins and they worked particularly well in mac ie and pushed
the menu left as I intended, but the content still overlapped the menu
in other browsers.
So I'm going back to what I had until I can find a solution to prevent
fixed position horizontal overlap of menu in a re-sizeable page. I do
like the way absolute wrapped content forces min-width keeping
everything inside, but I can't see what's happening in windows.
Thank you those who replied.
