Yes, this is a known bug in IE/Mac: when fixed positioning is used
it gets the 'hover' areas of elements in the wrong place so these
effects won't work. I would have thought 'active' would work though.
(Since scripting onmouseover etc. is also affected, this means fixed-
position DHTML menus won't work on IE/Mac either. Oh, dear!)

It's visible for me in 0.9.9, but all browsers are treating the width
differently. IE6/Win is making it 100%, Moz 099 is making it as small
as possible (and putting it too high up). Only Opera 6 correctly
calculates the width per CSS2; unfortunately it puts the div too
You can help these browsers out by specifying a 'width' (80%?) and
'height' (something px?) style.

Again, set the width.

Margins on absolute and fixed elements are part of that element, so
do not affect flow. However, even so, there are problems for cross-
browser interpretation of top and bottom margins to do with collapsing
over different parents, and the margins of the first and last non-
absolute-positioned elements on the page. (Some browsers ignore them
sometimes, some don't.)
Avoid the mess: put a big top and bottom padding on #content instead.
