    content overflow and search engines

    hi all,
    im designing a website and i want to do a fixed height design. im thinking of putting all the content in a div with overflow:hidden and having the content scroll that way rather than using iFrames. Will this have any impact on search engines? i know that iFrames dont really help with search engines, but unsure about how this technique will effect things.
    thanks

    It shouldn't make any difference - search engines just see the content, not the CSS.

    As Buddy Bradley said, it doesn't make any difference. As long as you don't try to use CSS to mask your content too much (like <div style="display: none;"><p>SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword, SEO Keyword</p></div> for example) you should be fine.
