Abe Lincoln said, "you can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time." He should have been a web designer.
To achieve the pixel perfect precision you're after, you'll need to build your pages entirely with images. Seriously, you can't control where things line up if the end user's settings are not exactly like your own. So don't go there.
Identify your target audience. Desktop/laptops mostly use 1024 - 1280 wide displays.
Google labs - Browser Size
Excessive horizontal scrolling to see a page is bad practice but vertical scrollbars are perfectly acceptable, and expected by site visitors. You're not doing anybody any favors by making your pages a fixed height. Depending on which toolbars people have opened in their browsers, you may find that 90% of your site visitors are seeing scrollbars anyway.I want the left hand address to always be visible at the bottom of the screen/page
Use a fixed division. See Sticky Demos below.
Many thanks for the advice, I thought this would be the case...and obviously a page full of images isn't practical. I just thought i'd check that there wasn't a miracle cure.
I've had a quick look at your sticky-text links...this might be a way round the problem. Can an image act as sticky-text? maybe if I gave the image the the stickytext "id"?
