    my scrollbars aren't coloring

    My stylesheet has the correct format for change my scrollbar colors, but it isn't changing them.

    When I view my site, scrollbars in the textarea of my form are being set correctly, but the main page scrollbars are not. (I'm using IE 6)

    What could be causing my scrollbars to not color, but my form ones to do what they should?

    Here is the site: www.iwhispered.net
    The stylesheet is at: www.iwhispered.net/nav/skin1.css

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    DOCTYPE sucks

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    That one line of code is why your scrollbar coloring is not working.

    The above DOCTYPE does not allow for some reason (maybe someone can explain why) the use of the scrollbar color css code.

    Hope that helps. I have chosen to forget about the scroll bar (Cause MACs don't see it, neither does Netscape) and leave my transitional in there so my pages layout correctly. Less frustrating problems that way.

    Also, does anybody have a workaround for this? Using one of the other available DOCTYPES maybe?

    Cosmic.

    It's an XHTML DOCTYPE, so it throws IE6 into standards-compliance mode. Since colored scrollbars are an IE CSS extension and are non-standard, they get disabled.

    Abjected by WWW-consortium

    Scrollbars are abjected by W3C, and therefore not available in "normal" mode.

    The scrolbars are abjected because they are not compatible with some much-used (especially older) browsers.
