    Scroll bars

    I've got 2 divs, leftContent and rightContent.

    Both are within a div called mainContent:

    <div id="mainContent">
    <div id="leftContent">

    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">About Us</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Services</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">How it Works</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact Us</a></li>

    <!--end #leftContent--></div>
    <div id="rightContent">

    <p>content here</p>

    <!--end #rightContent--></div>
    <!-- end #mainContent --></div>
    Each div is floated left and right respectively.

    How can I get the right hand div to scroll, but not the left div or the #mainContent/body?

    Is this possible? It would be the icing on my first webpage!




    ha - just worked it out: with the overflow: auto property....... is it possible to create my own scroll bars? the browser ones look **** :P

    There is proprietary CSS that can be used to change the colour of the scrollbars in IE and Opera provided that the browser owner hasn't turned it off. To do anything that would work in all browsers would mean using JavaScript to hide the browser generated scrollbar and insert your own JavaScript generated one in its place.
