The problem with position static, that I can see, is not only is the 
content static in the y-space, but also in the x-space.  This means that if 
a user scrolls the page left and right, well then the item(s) that you have 
fixed in a left hand gutter (as an example) do not remain fixed in this 
space, they end up sliding over the top of your content.

I'm looking for a Prototype.js alternative for this.  Any tips?
I can think of an alternative approach that might be suitable would be a 
scrollable div container.  I see these more and more, I'm not sure if these 
are coded with JavaScript or just using CSS overflow style on the div
