I'm not sure if there's a way to do this, but I would really appreciate if someone had an answer for this.

Basically, I have a div area with style=overflow:auto. I have text that is periodically appended to the area. When it overflows and scroll bars appear, I would like the area to scroll all the way to the bottom so that the new text is immediately visible.

What javascript methods would allow me to change the "scroll position" of that div area?

I appreciate any help you can give.
