    scroll bar not working in IE

    Hi all,
    Ive been trying to update an old site made by another co-worker a while ago.
    The prob is the divs all had a fixed height to fit with the content - now the content is larger so ive tried to re-code and add in a scroll bar, however, as usual this isnt working in explorer (the text just flows out of the div)

    I seem to have this problem a fair bit, and is obviously something im not doing right but cant figure out what it is..

    Any ideas?

    cant post links yet so here is the URL:

    www dot cstc dot org dot au slash 08index dot html


    Thanks in advance!

    Uhm - does this look right on any browser? Is #missioncol the element you're referring to? Looks like it just needs this:
    Code:
    #missioncol {
    overflow-y:scroll;
    }
    Unless you're referring to something else - it looks off in Firefox and IE.

    Wow, quick reply.. thanks!

    Yeah i just realised its not right in firefox either - however, when i preview in firefox from dreamweaver is right.. weird.

    Anyway, i need the scroll not on the whole div cos it looks a bit ugly with the round corners but instead on the #mission_text_col div inside it. so ive changed my overflow:auto; to your overflow-y:scroll; which is working well as far as text, but now the background image from #missioncol is missing in FF & IE. i have tried background-attachment:fixed; but no go..

    Any thoughts?

    That's because the path is messed up, dunno if it's a typo or IIS:
