You could put the static content in a div with 'overflow: auto', so
that you can scroll the content without causing the entire page to
scroll. Works on Mozilla and IE, though IE will still put a scroll-bar
(normally inactive) on the page unless you get rid of it with some
annoying CSS tricks discussed here before.

It also works in Opera, and, I believe, Konqueror. IE5/Mac supports it,
but there are bugs (links stop working IIRC). This may be fixed in 5.1.
So really it's only IE/Win, of the modern browsers, that has no support.
I keep saying I'm working on a script that makes it work transparently
in IE/Win. I will release it soon, honest. (It fixes IE's bugs in
'background-attachment: fixed' too.)
