    CBE not showing rest of lower page

    I am using the mFoster CBE at
    http://www.msmc.la.edu/library/multisub.htm
    On some old nt machines and win98 computers(medicine page) it will cutoff and not allow access to the lower half of the page, also I would like the user to be able to go back to the page they were on instead of the first div. It works great on win2k and xp. I am in the process of getting rid of the tables that the subject pages came from and hoping this may help. Everyone here on-campus loves it and so do I, thanx for a great model.

    I think I fixed the height problem by adding a 100% height setting in the stylesheet(libstyle.css), all our older computers show the full page now. I don't want to waste threads, I still need help for a user clicking on the left menu and then going somewhere, when they are done and want to go back, how do I set it to return to the previous div instead of the first one?

    Nice work, gmn17 !

    Good. Or let that container div have a defined (pixel) height and "overflow:auto".
    when they are done and want to go back, how do I set it to return to the previous div instead of the first one?
    On my homepage I "solved" this by setting a cookie when they click. When they return I check the cookie to see which DIV was displayed the last time they were on that page. It's not a perfect solution. It's something I implemented a few years ago.

    BTW...
