I have the flowing issue:

The header and footer are positioned fixed.
the content part(divided to sections) is very long(each "section" is 5000px long).
I am trying to do a site with navigation that instead of post back when clicking a "page"
in the navigation and load other page.
Will only animate with jquery and 'slide' down to the requested section.

I am having trouble with the position fixed header, each time I slide to different section
,the header hiding the content(and i understand why - it's calling the page id and then go to that height, not knowing of the header) what I need to do is always set the 'top' so the content page will be under the header.
I thought that if I'll set the position of the class page to relative and set the top to some pixels it will be ok ( cause i thought that if I position element to absolute,fixed,relative the top considered to be from the widow it self), isn't it?

This is the navigation html:
<div id="header" class="shadow">
            <ul id="nav">
                <li><a href="#section1"></a></li>
                <li><a href="#section2"></a></li>
                <li><a href="#section3"></a></li>

Header style:
#header {    
    height: 20%;
    width: 100%;
    position: fixed;
    background: #F5F6F7;

'section' style(one long page separated to sections)
.section {
    top: 163px;
    height: 5000px;
    width: 100%;
    position: relative;

jQuery part:
$('#nav a').bind('click', function (event) {
               var $anchor = $(this);
               $('html, body').stop().animate({
                   scrollTop: $($anchor.attr('href')).offset().top
               }, 1500, 'easeInOutExpo');

Am I approaching that solution the right way?
Thanks, I hope it make sense
