Well, after the changes the pages looked like version2.jpg .

Adding a "float: left;" to the notes class in css makes it look like 

.notes {
        float: left;
        width: 230px;
        height: 90%;
        position: absolute;
        position: fixed;
        overflow: auto;
        left: 20px;
        top: 30px;

Btw. a coworker told me that there is no way to make "position: fixed;" work in 
IE (any version). But I think that is not so much a problem. At 
least the page no longer looks somewhat distorted.


Greetings, Lars
