True - I'm only toying with the concept though. I think it's a
bad idea in itself to show people only the most right 800px of a
webpage. What if they're on a 600px viewport?
Going back to the OP's original question, and assuming he only
would wants the rightmost 800px be shown with a scrollbar to the
right but not to the left if on narrower viewports than 800px
(i.e. the full 800px width must be accessible, but not the
'extra' that's to the left of it), I think this may do what he's
IE6 needs a refresh after resizing the window though.
