    Your suggestions on display of long lists

    Hi,
    I was wondering if some experience web designers could give me a few suggestions on how best to display this.

    I am working on a site with blog type content items. Beneath each item is displayed a list of "related news" items.

    The problem is that some of these lists are quite long (sometimes 300 items in the list).

    How should I handle this?
    Maybe use an iframe that can scroll, thus displaying all the items, but not so much screen space?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    long lists

    An iframe would work for client browsers that support iframes. Rico Live Grid might be an option for users with javascript enabled.

    hmm, thanks. Actually I was thinking about it, and I dont know why I never thought to just use "overflow: scroll" on a containing div. Get the same effect without the hassle
